The Wolves Lane Horticultural Centre is a unique community resource on Wolves Lane in Wood Green, N22 5JD. The former 3 acre 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.
Conversations all about food and community space
A collaboration of community organisations, including The Ubele Initiative, decided to run an innovative series of group Conversations, as well as an afternoon festive market exploring food and community space based at Wolves Lane Horticultural Centre, Haringey.
Collaborating organisations are:
Crop Drop, Friends of Wolves Lane, Go Grow!, Haringey Migrant Support Centre, Living Under One Sun, London Grown Workers Co-op, Organiclea, The Selby Trust, Wolves Lane Flower Co., Wolves Lane Good Food Skills, The Ubele Initiative.

As a result of those conversations where we have been sharing ideas and building relationships to develop a community food hub at the former council-managed horticultural centre and feedback from the Festive Market, we are now planning a series of monthly community markets at Wolves Lane.
They will take place between May and December 2018.
The first market took place on Monday 7th May 1-6pm at Wolves Lane Horticultural Centre.
The next Wolves Lane Community Market will take place on Sunday 9th December 2018!
The gates at Wolves Lane Horticulture Centre are open every Sunday 10-4pm for the sale of plants and food produce from the site users.
