London Open Gardens: Approach Gardens

Date: Sunday 9 June 2024

On Sunday 9th June 2024, Approach Gardens are opening from 11am until 4pm for the London Open Garden Weekend. Visitors can buy plants, cakes, and drinks. This award-winning community food garden brought together diverse groups to create a thriving haven for local residents and wildlife. A resident-led committee rescued the site and with Lottery support it has developed to host over 40 raised growing beds, greatly valued by families, schoolchildren and a daycare centre. Asian and unusual vegetables grow alongside a fruit orchard, wildlife area and pond, with native hedgerows, bug hotels, nectar bars, a wildflower meadow, bat boxes and ivy walls for bees. It won a Silver award in the 2018 London in Bloom Awards in the Thriving Garden category, as well as being named Best Community Garden, Best Wildlife (Group) and Overall Group Winner in the Tower Hamlets in Bloom Awards.
