The Garden

Providence Row is a charity supporting homeless and vulnerable people in East London and providing accredited training in gardening. In the secret rooftop garden, more than 100 edible plants are grown, ensuring a constant supply of ingredients for the kitchen which creates up to 30 breakfasts and lunches every day. Raised beds of perennials provide year-round colour while mobile planters provide greenery. A large golden honey locust tree spans native woodland planting in the courtyard garden. The result is a flexible, therapeutic and attractive environment for the services and activities offered throughout the week by the charity.

Garden co-ordinator: Julie Floyd
