This garden was planted 15 years ago over unused spaces on an industrial estate in Kings Cross, Central London. The site is based on 5 genus of Elaeagnus for nitrogen fixing and has eighty different food crops growing. We harvest about two tons of food from the site. Most of this goes for the team working at Alara and for community parties. We use coppiced sweet chestnut for the fencing and terraces and collect and store rainwater in two pools and two harvesters. The garden shed, covered area and vineyard structure are made with recycled pallets, roof beams from a demolished house and repurposed industrial flaps.
