Growing Concerns

Olympic Park

Hidden between the Union Canal and the St Mark's Gate entrance of Victoria Park, this social enterprise garden centre is staffed by a team of horticulturalists and garden designers who are intent on improving the environment for those living in the East End. They work with local groups to transform little pockets of public space and go out into local schools to raise gardening awareness. If you're interested in improving your own skills or contributing to community projects, you can sign up for one of its gardening classes which include learning how to plant and raise a vegetable patch. Best-sellers include strawberries and herbs as well as organic compost.
