Church Lane Community Garden
A peaceful haven and somewhere to share information and experience of growing food.
The Community Garden has now reopened for visits by individuals and small groups.
Please be mindful of latest Covid-related restrictions and guidance.
If you don't feel ready or able to visit the garden, Shannon is still available on email to answer your food growing questions: firstname.lastname@example.org, and we may be able to arrange local delivery of seeds or plants.
Community food-growing space in the heart of Leytonstone.
Check the Events Calendar for planned workshops and other events.
Update for June 2022: Mondays and Saturdays
12 noon - 4pm
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 we would normally use for events over the summer (but currently needs repairing), 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.
