The Garden

This award-winning garden lies hidden behind a wooden doorway, next to the Hackney Peace Carnival Mural. It was created in 2010 on the old Eastern Curve railway line. The wooden pavilion and Pineapple House host community and educational events as well as music, dance, cooking and relaxation. Planting includes silver birch, alder, hazel and wild cherry. Fruit, vegetables and herbs grow in raised beds and these are used in the garden’s on-site licensed café. Volunteers of all ages tend the garden, which is bee-friendly. Rainwater is collected and used to water the raised beds and all waste garden material is composted on site.

Capital Growth garden: 12
