Wolves Lane Centre is a thriving space in North London for sustainable growing, education, social enterprise and community engagement. Ubele, along with OrganicLea, are legal partners and ‘stewards’ of the 3-acre site contributing to its development.

The former plant nursery has commercial glasshouses, a rare palm house with tropical plants, cactus garden, rainforest area, professional standard kitchen, classroom space, barn and woodland area. The buildings and glasshouses are in need of refurbishment which the consortium has committed to in development stages as well as investment in sustainable energy systems to heat the palm house.

2018-2019 Wolves Lane Community Food Hub and Market

We secured £20,000 grant plus support (Bright Ideas fund) to develop a regular community market and to formalise a consortium structure. Together with the collaborating organisations, we wanted to use the funding to enable us to go beyond mainly operating separately as individual businesses, and maximise the benefit of working at the site together and engaging with the community it serves. Wolves Lane Community Food Hub and Community Market was funded and supported by Power to Change.

Quotes from project contributors

We are really pleased to support the Ubele Initiative in the development of the Wolves Lane Community Hub and Market. The project has the potential to provide opportunities in food growing, healthy eating and community enterprise in the local area, and we look forward to seeing it progress. No-one understands a community better than the people who live there. This is why, through Bright Ideas we are providing a mix of support and small grants to local people to develop community business ideas that will transform their local areas.
