This is an incredible community project - The Dalston Eastern Curve Garden, built on a disused portion of railway.
|a beautiful green oasis in the middle of gritty London, where green space is few & far between|
|A great mix of urban art & nature|
|it was such a beautiful day, my lovely friend Sarah the ultimate garden nymph|
|they are currently building a green house|
|The amazing open air communal space is well used and is even home to a pizza oven|
Time for lunch and across the road is the Farm Shop, an amazing cafe that grows most of its own produce onsite, there are chickens on the roof, tomatos in a room at the top of the stairs, mushrooms growing in the basement, a poly tunnel of veggies and herbs in the back garden and salad greens in the cafe itself!
We then wandered over to the King Henry's Walk Garden, a more established community garden also in the Dalston area. It was amazing totally hidden away, like a little piece of paradise, we loved it :)
After all that it was time for a drink :)
Ice cold Mojitos were the perfect way to end the day!
Everyone we meet that day who were involved in the projects, were so friendly; aren't gardeners just the nicest people.
