The Garden

This gated community garden opened in 2006 and features fruit trees, a wildlife pond, flowerbeds, herb garden, grapevines and a winding path leading to a small fernery. Tate Modern and the green community charity, Bankside Open Spaces Trust (BOST) work in partnership on the project. Local residents including schoolchildren enjoy this garden. Children take part in planting days, pond dipping, wildlife-spotting, gardening clubs and the very popular Halloween event while local people meet, dig, have fun and take pleasure in flowers, plants and animals, in what is otherwise a busy tourist thoroughfare. Thanks to years of volunteers’ hard work, supported by Tate Modern and BOST, the garden is a much-loved haven for wildlife and local people.
