The Garden

Providence Row is a charity supporting homeless and vulnerable people in East London and providing accredited gardening training.

Just off bustling Brick Lane a large Gleditsia tree spans native woodland planting in the courtyard garden; raised beds of perennials are vibrant all year; and mobile planters provide greenery creating a flexible, therapeutic and attractive environment for the services and activities during the week.

On the rooftop a secret garden with a wide range of fruit, vegetables, herbs and edible flowers supplies the kitchen which produces 30-50 breakfasts and lunches daily! A pond and wildflower planting increase the biodiversity of the site.
