About us

The Wolves Lane Centre is a unique place in the heart of Wood Green in North London. We are a horticultural centre and community food growing hub with a mission to make good food accessible to all. We grow and distribute sustainably produced food and plants, and offer a hub for education, enterprise and community events. 

We have two thriving growing sites in the heart of Haringey - one at Pasture Gardens and another at Wolves Lane. The Centre has been nurtured by consortium organisations, the Ubele Initiative and Organiclea, dedicated Centre staff and passionate volunteers since 2017. The Centre is home to Blackrootz, 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.
