The Garden

This award-winning organic garden, created in the 1970s on reclaimed derelict land, is a vibrant and well-established oasis of tranquility in the heart of an historic inner-city area. Cable Street Community Gardens reflects the diversity of the borough, with more than 50 families tending plots. The garden attracts lots of wildlife with several small ponds and a traditional British hedgerow. It also features raised planters for elderly gardeners and and those with limited mobility and serves as an important community hub. Children are very welcome.
