We are on a mission to give more people in our community access to direct interaction with nature.  Our edible teaching gardens are urban green oases in which adults and children alike are invited to touch, dig, plant, harvest and taste.  Through such interaction, we hope to develop a deeper appreciation and a greater sense of responsibility for our environment.

Based in Kensington and Chelsea, we are uniquely positioned to connect local schools, who have limited outdoor space, to local churches, who have gardens ready to be creatively shared.

Growing Space makes sure the gardens are properly maintained and cared for by employing a site-specific environmental coordinator.


Growing Space is transforming urban green spaces into woodland & edible teaching gardens for nearby schools and the wider community.



We are excited to introduce our new concepts called my Mini Growing Space.



Schools, libraries, churches and community groups with a small underused outdoor space will be able to apply for a grant at the end of the summer.

Stay tuned in!
