The Garden

The Castle Garden is a long term project to make sustainable, productive and educational use of the space around the Castle building to grow food for the café, provide a space for wildlife and a relaxing space for the Castle members and staff. 

We began planning and building the garden in 2009 using permaculture principles and recycled materials with the help of strong and willing volunteers. Today the result is a one acre, vibrant, biodiverse space teeming with wildlife and an abundant variety of fruit, vegetables and herbs. 

Everyone is welcome to enjoy the garden; come see our busy bees making honey; try and spy the animals that live in the mini-habitat of the wildlife pond or just enjoy a cup of coffee in the sun during a break.

Garden Fit

Personal trainer Janos Atkins, graphic designer Susie Norris and garden manager Ida Fabrizio teamed up to create a series of guides to keep you Garden Fit.

These guides are intended to teach you about the use of garden tools, the repetitive tasks involved in gardening and provide coaching on how best to approach the work to minimise injury and get an all over body work-out!

Growing Communities 

We're a collection point for GC's veg box scheme! GC is a social enterprise providing seasonal and organic fruit and vegetables throughout Hackney.  We’ve had a long standing relationship with GC, and would highly recommend them.

Capital Growth

The Castle Garden is part of the Capital Growth network. Capital Growth is London's largest food growing network, with over 2,000 gardens throughout the city. They offer in-kind support to people who grow their own food in London, including providing access to discounted training, networking events, support with growing to sell and discounts on equipment. 

Cob in the Community

From building, sculpting, seed bombs, making clay ovens to mass heat ether rocket stoves. Our pizza oven was crafted with the help of Cob in the Community who led our staff and volunteers.
