Description:
These interlinked gardens on Camley Street are formed from land around an industrial estate 10 mins walk from King's Cross..

In 2005 after removing 50 tons of rubbish the largest area was enclosed and terraced using coppiced sweet-chestnut logs to make a Permaculture Forest Garden. This has been planted with silverberry, pomegranate, Japanese wineberry, apricot, apple, pear, plum, edible hawthorn, in total over 80 different food crops.

There is a vineyard next to a lorry park, an orchard by a cash & carry and a communal compost heap. In 2014 we built a greenhouse and extended the meeting area.
