The Garden

This demonstration garden, which is managed in partnership with Capital Growth (London’s food-growing network), the Royal Parks and Capel Manor College, serves to inspire, educate and showcase the growing of fruit and vegetables in an urban environment. It has a special focus on the use of chemical-free techniques and is a perfect example of a thriving food-growing space in the heart of the capital. The garden hosts Capital Growth food-growing training sessions as well as school visits, events and volunteering evenings.
