Gardening on open unused land


Capital growth is a network of food-growing spaces. As I write this, there are currently 1235 spaces across London, within schools, housing estates, businesses and housing estates. Their aim is to support 2012 new community spaces by the end of the next year. Visit the website for practical information and advice, as well as details of all the growing spaces.

Edible Gardens Day on 3 Sep sees over 40 community food-growing spaces opened up to the public, many of these can be visited on walking or cycle tours. The day promises to be a great opportunity to discover your local community and to learn more about growing food in the city.

Space 638 – The Dalston Eastern Curve Garden, 13 Dalston Lane

The Garden was created on the site of a disused railway line that had been derelict for over 30 years. In a setting which includes trees, wild-life planting, seating, and a wooden pavilion for community gatherings. The space is open to everyone, and is located in an area with little green space, and few residents have gardens of their own. On the day, you’re invited to bring food to cook in their clay oven or join in making pizzas from 1 til 6pm.
