Pictures of July’s walkabout

The usual July walkabout was replaced this year with a peek at two community growing initiatives.
First up was Chris Levack’s community garden on the corner of Hoxton Street. Given space in the community garden by the housing association Chris has turned a forgotten  corner of urban London into a very special garden. It’s an allotment in all but name – complete with greenhouse, meadow planting and plenty of healthy looking vegetables. The second location was St Mary’s Secret Garden where the lovely Paula Yassine gave us a private tour of the garden which was followed by drinks. The garden is completely fascinating and a great asset to the community. If you haven’t already been check out their website for opening times and special projects. Members took full advantage of all the well established plants on sale at very reasonable prices – another good reason to go!
