Greening Brownfield Community Garden

Description

Greening Brownfield is a community garden and food growing co-op designed and built by residents of Erno Goldfinger's Brownfield Estate in London.

Located on a formerly disused, overgrown tennis court, we use reclaimed and rehomed materials for our raised beds, benches and children's area.

We're encouraging wildlife with our beehives and improvised pond and are about to acquire some rescued battery hens.
