Lamlash Garden

Project leader/website co-creator/blogger

Lamlash Garden is one of London's Olympic 2012 Pocket Parks, which I created with my splendid neighbours by turning a flytipping hotspot into a public garden, which now includes a mini-orchard, raised beds for fruit and veg, social spaces and an enormous, rather noisy sparrow colony.

You can hear my interview on Monocle Radio and read my blog at Lamlash Garden. I also co-created the website, wrote the copy, and made the jam.

‘Lamlash Garden challenges common ideas of what a small park can be. I want all Londoners to have easy access to a local green space and, with your contribution, we are one step closer to realising that goal.’ Boris Johnson, (former) Mayor of London
