This award-winning community food garden is celebrating its 10th birthday in 2019. Cranbrook Estate residents and those from the surrounding area designed and built the garden in 2009. The garden nestles proudly within the iconic modernist Cranbrook Estate, designed by Skinner, Bailey and Lubetkin. Completed in the 1960s, it is home to Elizabeth Frink’s sculpture The Blind Beggar and his Dog. The garden, which holds regular community workshops, has 21 raised beds, a shed, greenhouse, composting facilities, a patio area with seating and a living roof. Awards for the garden have included an Outstanding rating in London in Bloom in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
