Northwick Park Community Garden

London - Wembley

We are working with the Councillors of Brent to create a food forest in Northwick Park by adding fruit trees to the otherwise barren park. The park contains playing fields maintained by Sport England and we are designing around these playing fields. Post Code is HA3 0AT

Through this work, another project has become available at Vale Farm (Sudbury Town, opposite leisure centre) to turn an overgrown allotment into a food forest. The council would be very happy for somebody to take this on. Post code is: HA0 3HF
