For hundreds of years our green spaces have provided an oasis of calm in the heart of the city. Today, we’re bringing life to the city with a thriving Apiary, Garden, Orchard and much more.
Our bees are currently busily producing Hackney Church Honey. We are excited to see what else can be harvested from our Gardens and are currently working on a project with the aim of producing fruit, vegetables, and flowers.
Together with a team of outstanding volunteers, we are developing the Gardens across our locations into beautiful sanctuaries. Located opposite our Orchard, the Walled Garden at St John at Hackney Church is a place of life and colour, a space for all to see the best of each season’s beauty. Also resident at St John at Hackney Church is our Apiary carefully tended to by a local beekeeper. Close-by, the garden in St. Luke’s Homerton is a peaceful sanctuary tucked away from busy streets, it is an ideal place to rest and sit in the quiet. We also meet at St. Leonard’s Shoreditch & St. Mary’s Leyton.
Our heart is to see each space become places of beauty, bringing people together to cultivate and create whilst building connection and community. We would love for you to join us!
