Growing Things!

Lockdown has inspired people in Shadwell to take up all kinds of new activities. One of these is gardening! 

Here, Jennifer, a local resident - shares her joy in growing things and how YOU can get involved!

If you're interested, simply fill out this form to support people living in Shadwell to start growing vegetables and herbs at home. 


This is a fun activity for any age group and can be done with very little resources and by reusing common household items that might end up in your recycling/rubbish otherwise. Please tell us more about your situation and we will try to find a way to support you to start growing for fun and food!


We are a group of local residents in Shadwell representing a number of local institutions (churches, mosques, community groups). 

This website exists to coordinate local efforts to support our community, and to identify gaps in provision – however big or small. We also want this to be a place that individuals can be connected up with others at this most challenging of times.
