The Garden

The Skip Garden is a mobile food garden on the King's Cross development site. We grow food and wildlife friendly plants in old skips and containers.  The garden serves as an educational platform where local children, young people and business employees work together on tangible projects to improve local sustainability.

We are one of Capital Growth training hub and an exciting example of organic urban agriculture on one of the largest development sites in Europe. Get some homemade cake in our organic vegetarian café and enjoy your food while admiring our hive, our growing skip and our brilliant recycled window glasshouse.
