Over the last couple of months a beautifully inspired community project has been born and seems to be gaining more and more momentum as the weeks pass, all through the diligent and impressive work from the 1 Love Community. By developing a system of raised vegetable beds, the project is setting to utilise unused spaces or those awaiting development in order to use this space as a place in the city for the local and diverse community to grow food, share knowledge and skills, build relations and care for their environment, all the while taking pride in their area.
Work-in-progress, the Community Garden project is really starting to take shape now, we look forward to see how it continues to develop.
The allotment set up really starting to take shape now.
In addition to this the location has offered itself up as one of the must see locations to see Street Art, offering a whole host of walls, setting to take this place to the high end of places that are essential to keep tabs on in London. We covered the Greenhouse Paint Jam held in the gardens a couple of months back which saw the area recieve its freshest incarnation as a Street Art venue (covered here), and since then a whole series of pieces have gone up and we are sharing them now ahead of the Meeting of Styles festival taking place in the 11th & 12th of July, which will see the Street Art gallery of the Nomadic Community Gardens transformed yet again.
