The Garden

Nic's Secret Garden in the corner of All Hallows Church is a small oasis in the urban city jungle and an exemplar of one person’s passion for gardening. Nic, one of the Corporation of London gardeners, created this garden and runs it in his spare time. The nursery is overflowing with plants that have been rescued or donated. Nic and a group of volunteers nurture the plants which are then passed onto neighbouring community garden projects. Nic is a passionate and knowledgeable champion of bringing biodiversity into city spaces and works with local schools and horticultural volunteer and community groups.

Gardener: Nic Guerra
