Spiral Garden

The development of a community garden on the formerly derelict playground site adjacent to Azile Everrit House was an integral part of a two phase development programme which also involves major improvements to the Plumstead Common Nature Reserve.

Spiral Garden was closed to free access by the public by Royal Greenwich Housing Department for Health and Safety reasons.

The garden is now managed by the Greenwich Community Development Agency. Gardening sessions take place on Thursdays, starting at 11am. Anybody is welcome to go along.

The transformation was inspired by the London 2012 Changing Places Programme. The development has been partly funded by a Sita Trust landfill grant in association with Entrust.

The Plumstead Common Nature Reserve and Spiral Garden development project has been partly funded through the Community Spaces programme which is being managed by Groundwork UK as an Award Partner to the Big Lottery Fund. Community Spaces is part of the Big Lottery Fund’s Changing Spaces Initiative.
