St Mary’s Secret Garden (Reg. Charity 1152027) is a beautiful and accessible community garden in Hackney, London. For over 25 years, it has offered a safe place where people with support needs and the local community can enjoy hands-on experience of gardening and growing together.
It’s a peaceful oasis in the middle of a busy area of the capital. Its 0.7 acre has been carefully designed to create a diverse green space. The garden is worked organically to encourage wildlife and to generate biodiversity.
The Silent Space
During the summer of 2016, St Mary’s Secret Garden took part in the Silent Space pilot project. Its Silent Space is now a permanent feature. A small area of trees close to the perimeter of the garden offers a quiet place for contemplation.
