Sometimes you find green spaces in the strangest of places, and this community garden in the West End of London is bringing country life to the city this September.
Sandwiched between Shaftesbury Avenue and Charing Cross Road is the gorgeous Phoenix Community Garden, the last in Covent Garden and a haven of wild flowers, bees and aged wooden benches perfect for eating your sandwiches on. It’s also home to the only frogs in the West End, and the gardener with his team of Sunday volunteers have created a variety of habitats that encourage as many wildlife species to thrive as possible.
On 4th September, Phoenix Garden is hosting it’s Second Annual Country Fayre to raise some much needed funds, and will have loads on offer to entertain everyone including farm animals from Surrey Docks Mobile Farm, a falconry display, fancy pigeon display, The London Pride Morris Dancers, The London Beekeepers Association, The Women’s Institute cake stall and the ‘St Giles & 7 Dials in Bloom’ Competition Award Ceremony.
This special little green space is one of my favourite lunch spots, and provides a relaxing haven for many other local workers who need a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, so give them all the support you can and maybe see you there!
