Green Mary Garden

Following the biodiversity audits we built the Green Mary Garden, a new Community Garden that consists of a sensory garden, a medicinal garden and a number of shared allotment plots for students and staff.

The sensory garden contains native plant species that appeal to all five senses: touch, smell, taste, sight and sound. The medicinal garden includes plants which were historically used within medicine.

The Allotments

The Green Mary Garden enhances the biodiversity of the Mile End campus and Tower Hamlets. We will also be installing 3 solitary bee posts around the garden which help provide a nesting site to help support the declining population of bees in London.
