Hi Everyone :grinning:,

It’s the beginning of a new month at Mobile Garden City, and with it comes a whole range of new tasks to be getting on with! This month, the gardeners will be completing the final harvest at the garden and focusing on preparing the garden for the winter months.


If you would like to take home some veg please come down to the garden when one of our gardeners is on site (Mon, Wed, Fri & Sat; see below timetable) and they’ll be able to help you out.


The team will also be bringing the veg cart to the Yard at Here East on Monday 30th October (5-6pm). Come say hello and take home some fresh produce from the Final Harvest of the year!

All the best,

The Mobile Garden City team

Fine art made in East London

Michael Worobec
’Fragments’

Influenced by the many and varied experiences drawn from life, Michael combines abstract and figurative elements to bear testament to our journey through life. In ‘Fragments’, he expresses our entry and subsequent flourishing, our road to extinction and alas our demise; the fitting in or not, the weave, the tattered tapestry.

Michael is a local painter, digital imager, photographer and visual artist working from MotherX Studios and was selected by us as winner of the Hackney WickED Art Prize 2017.

JOY | Gerry’s Studio | 24 Oct - 4 Nov

“You know what I hate the most? I open my mouth to say something and before I’ve even said anything I can see people ready to say “no”, to shake their heads. So, I’ve decided, I am not a pet. I am just me. And I love being me.”​

Clamour Theatre bring their brand new play, Joy, to Gerry’s Studio from 24 Oct - 4 Nov. Following one young woman’s journey through life, Joy celebrates the differences and similarities that exist within all of us.
