The Garden

Core Landscapes locates sites to transform into green havens with the aim of improving people’s mental and physical wellbeing through horticulture. The Whitechapel site in the heart of the East End is the project’s third site relocation since 2009. Each move tightens the project and improves the growing methods. A vacant plot of land now has a garden growing with an orchard, herbaceous borders, pond, plant nursery and food growing area, all grown in moveable containers – from Hornbeam trees to salad leaves. There is also a bus, fish to see and plants to buy. Mark Lane, BBC Gardeners’ World presenter and garden designer, is Core Landscapes’ first ever patron.
