Church Lane Community Garden

A peaceful haven and somewhere to share information and experience of growing food.

Important update:

Following the latest updated government guidelines, we have had to limit access to the Community Garden. Currently the garden remains open for collection of seeds or plants for home food growing.


During the Covid-19 outbreak the garden will maintain limited opening hours on Tuesdays and Saturdays when possible but this is subject to change at short notice.

Only one visitor or family at a time will be able to enter the garden, and if you wish to touch anything you will be asked to wash your hands first.

Shannon is available on email to answer your food growing questions:, and we encourage you to use our Facebook group to share gardening tips and photos.

If you are self-isolating we may be able to arrange delivery of seeds. Again, please email Shannon and discuss what you need.



Community food-growing space in the heart of Leytonstone.

Check the Events Calendar for planned workshops and other events.



Winter hours:

Saturdays 12 to 3pm



Harold Road, E11 4QY

At the foot of the steps to the footbridge over the Central line (at the end of the station car park).

The garden grows vegetables, herbs and fruit using organic methods, in a mixture of raised beds and larger beds of perennial vegetables.  Volunteers are on hand whenever the garden is open, to chat and offer gardening advice or suggestions.

Seeds, plants and pots are available, and there's a selection of garden tools available to borrow as well as gardening books for reference.

We have a community-built pizza oven which is used for events over the summer, and an apple press for juicing local apples that might otherwise go to waste.

There are occasional work days, workshops and skill share sessions on various topics.  Do get in touch if there's an event you'd like to help organise, a skill you'd like to share, or if you have an idea for a workshop.

Check the Events Calendar, pop into the garden on a Tuesday or Saturday, or contact Shannon at
