Squashes 900x600

OrganicLea is a community food growing project based at Hawkwood Plant Nursery in Chingford, at the edge of Epping Forest.

We also support food growing in community spaces and schools across the borough and beyond.

We grow veg and fruit for our veg box scheme, and for local cafes and restaurants, and we support volunteers and trainees to learn about food growing, and to gain the benefits of spending time in nature working with plants.

We hold inductions to volunteering twice a month.

See our website for more details about volunteering and training courses and how to refer someone else.
