The Garden

Clissold Community Garden is a community food growing space and part of the Peter Bedford Housing Association wellbeing programme. The garden is hidden behind a row of Georgian terrace houses and lies next to a very small wood. Access to the garden, which is frequented by resident artists, food growers, bird watchers and sun-lovers, can be found between two Georgian houses on Clissold Road, connecting Albion Road with Church Street Stoke Newington.

Community Gardener: Anna D'avanzo
