The Kath Gillmore Community Garden can be found on the Grade II-listed Peabody housing estate, built in 1871. The garden was created from a disused tarmac courtyard in 2013 and consists of 14 raised beds. Residents use these to grow food and nectar-rich plants. A planted courtyard with fruiting hedge and herbs provides an enchanting entrance to the garden. It has hosted many gardening clubs, theatrical performances and bike workshops and is managed by a local beekeeper (children’s bee suits will be available to try on), with the help of residents on the Peabody Blackfriars and surrounding estates and housing lands.
