The Garden

Core Landscapes transforms barren empty sites into green community havens which improve people’s wellbeing through horticulture. The Whitechapel site in the heart of the East End is the project’s third site change in the last decade. With each move, the project strengthens and improves. An empty piece of land now has a thriving garden, with an orchard, herbaceous borders, pond, plant nursery, medicinal plants and food growing area featuring moveable containers. There is also a bus, fish to see and plants to buy, and the garden was crowned the Overall Winner of the 'Our Community Award' in the 2018 London in Bloom Awards.
