Back in 2008 the project, initially commissioned by the Shoreditch Trust began to create with residents the growing kitchen garden. The idea was that the kitchen, as the heart of the home could also become the heart of the community. Since then the project and its growing community has flourished. Thanks to funding from the Big Lottery we established the people involved as a constituted resident group, enabling them to achieve in both informal and formal governance.

The success of this project and the relationships foraged has shaped a whole programme of work across the estate.
