The Garden has been created on the old Eastern Curve railway line which once linked Dalston Junction Station to the goods yard and the North London Line. The architectural collective Exyzt who built temporary Dalston Mill on the site in 2009, returned in spring 2010 to construct a spacious wooden garden pavilion for events, workshops and gatherings. Wildlife-friendly trees and shrubs, including hazel, hawthorn and birch have been planted alongside butterfly bushes, bracken and other plants that were already growing on the derelict site. The Garden also includes large raised beds for growing food, which are already filling up fast with tomatoes, peppers and scented herbs, all grown by Dalston residents.

My cleaner is in and I avoid the guilt of not helping by getting out of the house.
This place is close by and I've never been in so I swung by to get a cuppa and to read in peace.
Chairs are scattered about in the garden and under the shelter, there is a strong community vibe as children's artwork hangs on one wall and homemade potteries sit next to another. A guy was practising his guitar...more
