I got my things prepared and I walked to the tube station: destination London Bridge tube station. I was fortunate to have my friend as guide, as we walked through the little alleys by the Shard tower and finally after 5 minutes walk , we found the "place".
A few metres from this gigantic glass tower, there is a garden producing fruits and vegetables.
I could not believe in my eyes, not because of a garden but because of the existence of a garden in a such small distance from the industrialised office pool of high buildings. I managed to have a chat with David, the project supervisor, who was very willing to give us a tour. Neither fertilisers nor pesticides or any other lethal substance are used to cultivate these vegetables. Pure organic fresh produce!
By the way, there are some hanging baskets with cherry tomatoes outside the garden where people can take off the basket for free.
I was told that there is a restaurant which buys some of the fresh produce and they are looking for some new customers to support their project. Feel free to visit the garden and if you know a restaurant which can buy some of their produce, it would be of a great help.
I placed some pictures to see the garden but also I placed a photo of the gift I was given by David:
the London giant courgette, amazing!
London keeps alive by constantly providing innovation in food production and taste,
London taste is sky-rocketing.
I did not mention previously that the garden belongs to a team which helps homeless people.
