A new green space for Edmonton locals to design, care for and enjoy together.
The garden offers opportunities for everyone to get involved. Share your own skills and talents or learn a new one. Help us grow food; create pollinator and wildlife attractions; and join in with our under 5’s club, workshops, and family community events to help you get active and grow the Meridian One Community Garden.
We’d love to hear from local individuals, gardeners, herbalists, carpenters, artists (musicians, spoken word artists, poets, sculptors, muralists, painters, etc.) and community groups with suggestions for potential events and garden development ideas.

About the site
‘Meridian One’, is a cleared piece of the former national grid gas works site, in between Meridian Way and the West Anglia main line railway line to the east (served by Meridian Water train station). It is being developed by Countryside Partnerships as part of a 25-year regeneration scheme of the Meridian Water area.
The Meridian One Community Garden is a meanwhile site on that plot for the next 10 years, which will expand over time as adjoining patches of land are released to us. To help the community get things started, The Conservation Volunteers (TCV) will manage the site for the first four years from Autumn 2022. See below for opening times and volunteering and educational opportunities. From time to time, we will also be hosting a range of workshops and family events.
