Regrettably, our cafe is closed until further notice
The Living Lab project demonstrates an innovative, closed-loop food-waste-energy system providing new opportunities for local participation, education and training. We grow a wide range of foods; harvest produce to create nutritious meals in our community café; digest food waste to create renewable biogas and liquid fertilizer; use the fertilizer to enhance plant growth; and use biogas for cooking and heating indoor growing space in winter. We aim to develop the project into an environmental educational facility and a sustainable social enterprise. With volunteers, we have created additional raised beds and low-cost vertical hydroponic systems. Find out more here.
We aim to give communities a space they can call their own, whether to relax and enjoy the garden or grow some of their own vegetables to take home. A strong community is the heart of any town or city and our open garden serves to provide a place for people to enjoy with their neighbours. We have two types of food growing provision, group sessions working in the communal growing space or individual allotments.
We provide gardening, crafts and healthy eating sessions throughout the week, primarily for retired people but anyone is welcome to attend. Gardening provides not only exercise but enjoyment and fresh food. The sessions started as referrals from GP’s to exercise and get involved in social activity. Originally one day a week, we now offer daily sessions including a creative art session on Monday thanks to funding received from the Mercers’ Company. Participants benefit from physical exercise and improved diet. We talk about the principles and benefits of healthy eating, we also share cooking tips and recipes. Our sessions provide the opportunity to meet and make friends with other local people.

Our garden gives opportunities for hands-on contact with nature in the heart of King’s Cross. We are not only a green space to relax in, but have vegetable plots, a woodland play area, and a wild garden planted with native species which includes a pond and beehive. All of these areas are used for a wide range of activities with different groups.
