Wolves Lane Centre is a horticultural centre and community food growing hub. We grow and distribute sustainably produced food and plants, and offer a hub for education, enterprise and events, making good food accessible to all.
We have two growing sites in Haringey at Pasteur Gardens and Wolves Lane. Our sites are run by a consortium of community organisations, Wolves Lane Centre employees and volunteers since 2017.
Our Wolves Lane site boasts a flourishing Cactus House and Palm House, complete with a koi pond and our resident terrapin turtles. Come and explore the site for free on Fridays and Sundays from 10am to 3pm where you can also indulge in a our delicious vegan lunch from our pay-what-you-can-afford cafe and take home our locally grown plants and produce from our shop.
We have so much to offer from volunteering, career opportunities, horticultural courses, venue higher and community events. Get in touch and sign up to our newsletter to join the Wolves Lane Centre community today.
The Wolves Lane Consortium
OrganicLea and the Ubele Initiative formed a coalition with a shared vision to transform Wolves Lane into a community food hub and to preserve the extensive rare urban glasshouse infrastructure. The Wolves Lane Consortium was officially established in May 2019.
OrganicLea offering support from experience of running a community enterprise in food growing and training at Hawkwood Nursery.
The Ubele Initiative is an African Diaspora led intergenerational social enterprise founded in 2014, with the purpose of helping to build more sustainable communities across the UK. They support a wide range of communities, community-based organisations and groups with their community assets through social action, community enterprise development and next-generation leadership initiatives.
Wolves Lane Centre is also home to a number of groups, projects and activities, which include:
Black Rootz is the first multigenerational black-led growing project in the UK, where the older generation share their expertise on growing whilst also supporting youth engagement in their surrounding natural environment.
Ottolenghi staff grows produce that provides part of their monthly veggie supply.
Friends of Wolves Lane is a group of volunteers and local residents. All welcome.
