The Garden

Providence Row, a charity supporting homeless and vulnerable people in East London, provides accredited training in gardening. In the rooftop garden, more than 100 edible plants are grown ensuring a constant supply of ingredients for the kitchen, which serves breakfast and lunch to more than 30 people every day. Downstairs, raised beds of perennials provide year-round colour while mobile planters provide greenery. A large golden honey locust spans native woodland planting in the courtyard garden. The result is a flexible, therapeutic and attractive environment for the services and activities offered throughout the week.
