Alara Permaculture Forest Garden Open Weekend & Plant Sale

Date: Saturday 8 June 2024

Alara Permaculture Forest Garden opens from 10am until 4pm for London Open Gardens on Saturday 8th June 2024 and Sunday 9th June 2024. The entrance for the Alara Permaculture Forest Garden is on Camley Street – between Booker Cash & Carry and Alara (nearest postcode: N1C 4PF). These interlinked gardens on Camley Street were created from pieces of derelict land, just a 10-minute stroll from King’s Cross. In 2005, 50 tons of rubbish were removed as work began on transforming the largest area into a Permaculture Forest Garden, using coppiced sweet-chestnut logs. This has been planted with silverberry, pomegranate, Japanese wineberry, apricot, apple, pear, plum and edible hawthorn, and the garden now produces more than 80 different food crops. There is a vineyard by a lorry park, an orchard by a cash and carry, and other orchards. A greenhouse was added and the meeting area was extended in 2014. For more information, please click here.
