This video was produced by Capital Growth. It records the contributions of different community gardens during the Covid crisis. Jazz Browne, CEO of Nubian Life is interviewed about the work at the Josiah Braithwaite Community Garden.
Ecological wildlife-friendly garden
Welcome to our Josiah Braithwaite Community Garden. The garden provides a diverse range of edible plants with plenty of benefits for wildlife.
The garden has a permaculture design and was installed by Permablitz London and filmed by BBC Gardeners’ World and broadcast in June 2018. The garden is one of Permablitz London’s showcase gardens.
Find us at 50 Ellerslie Road, London W12 7BW.
You will be very welcome to join us at any of these events in the garden. Let us know you are coming by emailing email@example.com so we know how many to expect for lunch. Hope to see you soon.

Growing microgreens for health

Growing Together is a project where we grow fruit, vegetables and flowers together. We will be continuing the project in 2022. We have free seeds that you can collect to start growing and we will support you with online workshops to explain what to do. We want to grow together on windowsills, balconies or in gardens, sharing our experiences and knowledge.
The project is part of Capital Growth’s Community Harvest and we have grown food for Asian and African Caribbean elders as well as for people in the local community.
