A community led green space in the heart of Forest Gate.

A beautiful oasis and constantly evolving natural environment that hosts activities, events, workshops and school groups throughout the year.

It is cared for, maintained and supported by a group of dedicated volunteers with biodiversity and sustainability at its core.


Everyone is Welcome

In 2013 a group approached the Council to set it up as a community garden, finally getting a lease in 2015. Over 70 volunteers worked to clear rubbish and buddleia, build raised beds, a pond, and finally put in plants. read more...
