The Garden

The garden is host to a variety of flora, fauna and wildlife, including 37 species of tree and 161 species of plants. The team runs an organic food growing programme to improve health and wellbeing, composts all organic waste and supports community composting. The original clock tower from the Eastern Fever Hospital (now Homerton Hospital), designed by Giles and Biven, is also located in the garden. The yard opposite has three greenhouses, a potting shed, a variety of potted plants and a giant 40-year-old American Blue Agave. Troy Town ceramics studio is also located in the yard.
