History

We began our journey in 2011 as a community food-growing project. We achieved Social Enterprise Status which allows us to trade Bee Interested in Portobello Road food products. Our wonderful volunteers have renovated and built the food garden on site and been maintaining it.

Our first major tranche of funding came from Natwest bank under their community force scheme, which was voted for by the public, baring great testimony to the desire for projects that unite inner city communities.

Our first site was at St Micheal’s Church here are before and after shots.
