Old skips have been transformed into a lush and verdant organic vegetable garden at Kingscross Skip Garden. Situated in the center of London on a former bus park site, the garden has been designed to be largely self sustaining, thanks to a full complement of organic gardening practices, including aerobic and worm composting, companion and rotational planting, rainwater harvesting, and bee hives. The skips were chosen as they can easily be moved to new locations. The site also boasts a café where the produce from the garden is cooked and sold.
