Easter 2018 sees a new community garden & cafe for NorthEast London.
The garden will serve an important social space for the local community, and is intended to host a range of events, organised both by the on-site team and other community groups, from film screenings, to talks and live music. There will be at least one volunteering session every week, and anybody is welcome to come and help take care of the garden.
The garden is designed to be mobile, and has been in 3 different locations since 2012, the same elements reconfigured each time it occupies a new site. The most recent version of the garden had a large public social area, a quieter 'members-only' garden where volunteers grow their own fruit and veg, a wildflower meadow, kitchen garden, cafe, greenhouse and training area. Beep Studio is delighted to have supported the garden in its new location.
Beep Studio supported the Grow team in planning and designing the temporary use of the warehouse as a venue for a variety of uses including artists studios, a cafe & bar plus a 200 person nightclub.
The Studios work was to enable the project, advise on specific products and construction arrangements and interface with sound system designers to create a temporary but high quality space. Importantly, this space can be enhanced by the Grow Community during its run at the Tottenham site.
The project follows hot on the heels of the successful 'Grow Elephant Community Garden' on New Kent Road, which hosted regular gardening workshops, volunteering sessions, and plant propogation for use on projects across Elephant and Castle.
