London Community Herbalists have teamed up with the parents and wider community of North Harringay Primary School to create a unique and exciting project. We are building an international roof garden, using sustainable building technologies, that feature plants that can be used for food and for medicine. Our planting, the atmosphere and aim of our garden is to value, and celebrate the rich cultural diversity, knowledge and tradition of our local area.

The roof garden was opened on 9th July 2005. See the project develop in photographs from July 2004 to today.
