The Garden

This urban farm in Waterloo is a real hidden gem, just moments from the South Bank. A strip of wasteland has been transformed into a thriving community resource and a haven for nature, with an emphasis on learning to care for people, plants, animals and the environment. The farm, which is a partnership between Oasis Hub Waterloo and Jamie's Farm, runs therapeutic and educational activities for children, workshops and seasonal events, and welcomes volunteers. As well as the farm, there is a private walled garden designed by Dan Pearson, which is normally only usable by staff.
