Golden Baggers is a community food-growing space created by the residents of Golden Lane Estate. Started in 2010 with 20 one-tonne bags on the unused former nursery playground, its popularity quickly grew and a further 20 bags were added in 2011.

In early 2016 the bags were replaced by boxes to provide a more permanent, accessible solution and comprises 42 individual boxes, for the growing of fruit, vegetables, salad crops and flowers. A communal herb garden, soft fruit, apple trees in pots and a grapevine add to the range of produce grown. There is a small wildlife area and children have their own shed and digging box.
