Hoxton Garden School

Hoxton Garden School, Hackney, London

IMG_3652Our first year at Hoxton. We started to build the garden in February and after a month clearing massive tree trunks, old sheds and rotten bridges we constructed lots of raised beds. By June the garden looked like this and we had a huge amount of produce in just a few months. Many thanks to all of the groups of volunteers who came to help. The garden is now a safe and exciting area of the school which we can use across all curriculum subjects. The pupils love it!IMG_3655
