This garden is located in the original exercise yard for prisoners of the Old Kennington Courthouse, the last surviving Victorian courthouse in London and a Grade II listed building. The gated courtyard garden features a golden Buddha statue, a meditative garden space and a mini-meadow. Designed and maintained by volunteers, the garden has been planted entirely in raised beds and pots with a mixture of shrubs, climbers, perennials, herbs, fruit, vegetables, annuals and wildflowers. His Holiness the Dalai Lama visited in 1999 and planted a 10ft magnolia tree. Bringing the courthouse back into community use was a key commitment made during the purchase campaign, and now the centre is working with local health, non-profit and community groups to ensure the facility is shared.
