Creating a new Kitchen Garden

Nearly ten years after we started work on our first Kitchen Garden, the Chiswick House Kitchen Garden, we get to create another one. Cultivate London has been given a 25 year lease by the National Trust on a large garden in Isleworth on the London Road. The garden was initially cleared by Cultivate who rigged a couple of polytunnels to grow salads. Now the plan is to create a garden bursting with productivity and beauty that can be used as a community space, and train young and old in horticulture. It feels like a good challenge.  Jutta Wagner, who was a co-author on The Family Kitchen Garden, draws up a plan.
