The Garden

These three beautiful gardens support biodiversity, foster connections in the local community, promote positive mental health for all, and showcase replicable climate change mitigation techniques. The gardens boast food and herb growing, herbacious borders, wild areas, a plant nursery, an event space, sheltered teaching space and the most beautiful polypod ever. An Arts and Crafts fair will take place on Saturday with work created by Core Arts students and volunteers.

The gardens were awarded an "Outstanding" rating and were the "Category Winner" for roof gardens, in London in Bloom and the Green Flag award 2023.

Core Landscapes is part of Core Arts' award-winning mental health charity' and uses horticulture to transform underused sites into green havens to promote wellbeing.
