Located on the corner of Tyssen Street and Hoxton Street in the centre of Hoxton is the Community Garden. A beautiful public recreational area filled with a variety of plants and flowers.
Under supervision by our NVQ Training Manager, it continues to flourish from the care and dedication of students and volunteers. The flower beds, in particular, have had a noticeable upgrade to add to the splendour.
The management of the Garden has been made somewhat easier due to the ban of alcohol, dogs and ball games. This in turn has created a more pleasant environment for the public to enjoy.
We also host children's fun days and workshops here annually which are a great success.
Due to its location, in a vibrant creative area and surroundings of small companies and bars, Hoxton Square gets much use. It also plays host to occasional events and exhibitions in the summer.
Situated in Pitfield Street, N1 is St. John the Baptist Church of Hoxton. Here, our students and volunteers regularly help to keep the surrounding garden in good shape.
Working with our NVQ level 1 Amenity Horticulture trainees, we also create and maintain Hatherway Gardens on Arden Estate, and will be delivering a new planting scheme on Pitfield Estate and in St. Leonard's Court, both in N1.
Back in 2000, The Hoxton Trust was responsible for the implementation of the Hoxton Street Market Arch. This was a way of giving the section of the street, which has market traders, a stronger identity.
We have also managed to renovate this street area with the addition of new signs, flower baskets, bicycle moorings, benches and bins.
