Latest Projects


Our latest project is launching in pocket neighbourhoods in Walthamstow's Wood Street ward, Beans on Balconies is a new network for local residents to make space to grow fruit and vegetables in small places. 

We're looking forward to collaborating with residents and Blackhorse Workshop and growing mentors to co-design and assemble planters that really fit our balconies and the way we live in our flats. With money raised by Health Lives through the Health Lottery we have funding for seed and compost giveaways, designing and making sessions, neighbourhood feasts, fruitful and frivolous challenges and practical growing advice.


Become a Beans on Balconies Cultivator

If you love growing, love making things happen, or love sharing news join the Beans on Balconies Working Group as a Cultivator. This is an opportunity to get involved in co-designing planters that fit our balcony spaces, devising events and planning feasts, fundraising and sponsorship, and spreading the word amongst neighbours. The Beans on Balconies team will support Cultivators to share existing skills and acquire new ones as suits your interests.

Join our Growers Socials, and our family sessions.

Beans on Balconies is a friendly network of people living around Wood Street and Shernhall Street, Walthamstow. We enjoy growing plants, eating, cooking, making things and meeting people. We've secured funding to support households in pocket neighbourhoods around Wood Street to enjoy growing and sharing food, especially people with limited space to grow plants. 

We're meet regularly to share tips, ideas, space saving solutions, seeds, skills, plan neighbourhood events and build friendships. We have a facebook group where we share news about upcoming events and opportunities for local residents.
