    1. Community Garden Open @ Church Lane Community Garden
      10:00 am – 4:00 pm

      Church Lane Community Garden is open every Saturday from 10am to 4pm, also Wednesdays, 11am-4pm. It’s on Harold Road, just past the children’s playground and the footbridge over the Central line. Come along to see what’s growing, admire our locally built pizza oven, solar dryer, apple press and amazing water butts. You can also borrow a range of gardening tools; plants are available for a donation. Community gardeners Shannon and Mihkel will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. We hold regular Saturday workshops and events over the year.

      A few examples: mushroom growing, apple juicing, compost making, pruning, building a cold frame. Experienced or not, we welcome new people.

      Perhaps you’d like to volunteer? That would be fantastic, as our hard-working community garden team could always do with more help.

      The stall has been going since July 2011; it’s a partnership between Transition Leytonstone and local food growing cooperative OrganicLea. Definitely the best place in Leytonstone for seasonal organic and local fresh produce, it’s open every Saturday from 10am-3pm, sometimes a little bit later – if you’re lucky.Saturday Stall-a_31.10.15 The stall also features eggs from ex-battery rescued hens (very happy layers now), super organic veggie samosas (the best I’ve ever eaten), jams, chutneys, fruit juices and amazing locally baked bread – one slice will definitely satisfy you for a while! Also not to be missed: OrganicLea’s unusual mixed salad bags – the contents vary throughout the year, with brightly coloured edible flowers a summer trademark.

      Transition Leytonstone also provides stall volunteers, who enjoy a 20% discount on all produce. If you’re interested in regular or occasional volunteering, find out more from RoseMary, our volunteer coordinator.

    1. Best Before Stall @ Next to Matalan
      10:00 am – 3:00 pm

      A new addition to our successful Saturday Produce Stall.

      Our first Best Before Stall - October 1, 2016

      Our first Best Before Stall – October 1, 2016

      The Best Before Stall stocks an ever-changing selection of packaged foods from spices to rices – via puddings, preserves, pasta, drinks, crisps, teas and chocolates. One thing all of these foods have in common is that they are all past their ‘best before’ date. They are perfectly OK and legal to be offered for sale. So come along, have a browse, choose your items and pay us what you feel is right. The stall is run in collaboration with the Best Before Project, ThisisRubbish and FRP. We are currently running this stall on the first Saturday of every month. If you’d like to volunteer with us, we might be able to hold it every Saturday. Stop the waste, stop the rot!
