The Garden

This organic garden, created in the 1970s on reclaimed derelict land, is a well-established oasis of tranquility in the heart of an historic inner-city area. Cable Street Community Gardens has grown into very successful community project, with members and their families looking after more than 50 plots. The garden is a haven for wildlife with several small ponds and a traditional British hedgerow. It also has raised planters for elderly gardeners and those with limited mobility and serves as an important community focal point.
