The Garden

Clissold Community Garden is part of Peter Bedford Housing Association’s (PBHA) horticultural therapy programme and a burgeoning social enterprise. Hidden behind a row of Georgian terrace houses and bordering a very small wood, tenants and participants have used recycled materials and propagated plants over the years to create an established permaculture garden. Access to the garden, which is frequented by resident artists, food growers, bird watchers and sun-lovers, can be found between two Georgian houses on Clissold Road, connecting Albion Road with Church Street Stoke Newington.
