White’s Grounds Estate Garden

by White's Grounds Estate Residents

Residents and community groups have greened the communal areas of this estate, once the site of the historic Black Eagle Brewery. Bamboos and shrubs have been used to screen exposed areas of blocks, and fruit trees, roses and herbs have been introduced into internal areas. The large internal courtyard has been planted with hazel, and large raised beds have been set up, producing salads, vegetables, and flowers for insects and bees. A composting scheme consumes waste from residents and fertilises the garden.

Can you find… the bee hotel?
