The Calthorpe Project
Here's another of those integral community gardens that, frankly, should be found in every single neighbourhood. Calthorpe Project is a small green oasis of calm in the heart of King's Cross; a multi-purpose space offering that peace, that tranquility, that sense of community that everyone needs, no matter how big and tough they might make out. Set up with the aim of improving the physical and emotional well being of those who live, work or study in Camden, this is home to a horticultural volunteering programme, food growing, a vegetarian cafe and a 5-a-side futsal pitch. The cafe does toasties, salads and spinach and feta pies to keep things ticking over. There's even beer for sale and a pizza oven in use come Friday evenings in the summer. Not the biggest community garden you'll come across, but one with a big old heart.
