About Wolves Lane Centre

The Wolves Lane Centre, nestled in the heart of Haringey, has been a food growing site since Tudor times. It has evolved from tenant farming land, war time allotments, to council glasshouses. Officially established in May 2019, OrganicLea and the Ubele Initiative formed a coalition with a shared vision to transform the Wolves Lane Centre into a center for urban food production, creating a welcoming space for Black and racially minoritised growers and to preserve the historic glasshouse structures built in the 1970s. Today the Wolves Lane Centre is a horticultural centre and community food growing hub with a mission to make good food accessible to all.  

Alongside our Wolves Lane Centre growers, our site is home to Black Rootz, the first multigenerational black-led growing project in the UK. Black Rootz enables the older generation to share their expertise on growing whilst also supporting youth engagement in their surrounding natural environment.

We have two thriving growing sites - one at Pasteur Gardens and another at Wolves Lane. Our Wolves Lane site boasts a flourishing Cactus House and Palm House, complete with a koi pond and our resident terrapin turtles, alongside food growing glasshouses. We endeavour to keep our doors open to as many visitors as possible through free open days on Fridays and Sundays, volunteering days throughout the week, school educational visits, horticultural courses, community markets and so much more.
