Urban Growth Learning Gardens is a social enterprise that improves the well-being of Londoners through providing Education, Employment and Environmental Transformation. We support vulnerable groups into sustainable, rewarding employment by transforming neglected urban spaces into thriving community oases.

We collaborate with businesses, individuals, community organisations & education providers, to improve educational outcomes, create jobs and enrich London’s outdoor spaces. We deliver nationally recognised qualifications to people in search of rewarding work. Our services are open-access, but we specialise in supporting people with a diverse range of needs, who may be socially isolated or face barriers to education and employment. We pay all our employees above the London Living Wage.
