Cody Dock
One of London's most exciting creative spaces, Cody Dock provides a gateway to the Lea River Park and is home to a gallery, gardens, cafe & bar that make this the perfect pit stop for exploring The Line Sculpture trail and Lower Lea River.  We'd love to hear from any UCL students who'd like to volunteer with us.

Join our team and help us look after our gardens. We are fast approaching Spring/Summer season which is the most  important time of the year if it comes to gardening! It’s time to start the seedlings in the Growing Space and then transplant them into planters. Let  us know if you are interested in creating a beautiful and sustainable veg garden inspired by nature but set up in an urban environment! The plan for this year is to grow enough veg to share it with a community! The Gardening sessions may also involve a little bit of crafting and making tasks such as making planters, decorating pots and creating signs, making soup and seed paper. Get creative and sustainable with us this year!

  • Get a better understanding of how to plan and design garden based on permaculture principles
  • Learning more about growing vegetable 
  • Learning more about sustainable gardening
