A 1.2-acre community garden, which opened in 1984 after local residents campaigned against the sale of the land for development.

Today it includes a Walter Segal self-build community building, an under-fives’ area, a wild garden, community composting area, Bangladeshi womens' plots, family plots and an AstroTurf futsal pitch.

We have also developed a food-growing area with raised beds and a large polytunnel for use by local people, schools and other community groups. Small allotments are available for local families.

Last year we installed an anaerobic digester, which turns raw and cooked food waste into liquid fertiliser (digestate) and bio-gas.

Capital Growth garden: 1799

Gardeners: Staff and volunteers
