Growing Space at St Helen's

The Garden

The Growing Space at St Helen's is one of the four Growing Space edible teaching gardens. It is based in North Kensington and has four sections: an edible teaching garden that local children use to learn how to grow food all year round; woodland with a fantastic natural wooden climbing area; an ecological area which is untouched and used exclusively to observe nature; and a small sensory garden with herbs, beautiful flowers and much more, for everyone's pleasure. Plants, herbs and flowers are grown organically all year round.

Please note that entry to the garden is from Kelfield Gardens (not St Quintin Avenue).

Environmental Coordinator: Pascale Rochefeuille
