Skip GardenA mobile allotment on the King's Cross development site, The Skip Garden puts construction workers' big bins to green use. Built on one of the largest development sites in Europe, the garden serves as an educational platform for local children, young people and business employees. The functions of an organic garden - including a growing house and green engine - are separated into separate skips and the fruit and vegetables grown here are sold to local cafés and restaurants including the Guardian canteen.
