This large community space has been developing since 2012. Local people manage the garden using a wide variety of different sustainable gardening methods. A wide range of fruit and vegetables grow here, with permaculture techniques used to create an edible forest garden. Other features include a pond, pergola, hot composting, natural beekeeping, hügelkultur and a polytunnel. There are also bees and chickens on the site, which used to be part of the old wharf of the Surrey Canal. You can still see the old cobbles. A lively, diverse and busy project, this is an ‘ideas hub’ for alternative gardening, ecological design and sustainability. The garden is a Permaculture Association Land Centre.
