Project Category: Social Enterprise
The idea for turning a corner of the Haggerston Park into a food production area first came from a member of the park user group, who hoped to used the old derelict depot site. Although this was turned down, we realised that the area next door was already flanked by lots of heavily fruiting plum trees. The project then morphed into a food forest in which new fruit trees would be surrounded by edible perennials which anybody could access. The area of the park was opened up to increase its use, with fences and hedges removed so that people could flow into the park.
