Josiah Braithwaite Community Garden

Shepherd's Bush is full of surprises, and even a few hidden treasures, some of them not well known or well publicised. 

One such treasure is The Josiah Braithwaite Community Garden, part of the Nubian Life Resource Centre in White City, located a little north of Wormholt Park, next to the Janet Adegoke swimming pool

The garden is open to visitors, and is a great place to bring children, who can meet Percy the rabbit (see left), and various other characters, including some chickens and a guinea pig.

For urban children who don't get a lot of wildlife or furry friends, the Community Garden is a small treasure in our neighbourhood. 

The Josiah Braithwaite Community Garden originated as a collaboration between Permablitz London, Living Medicine and the Nubian Life Centre in White City, West London. 

Nubian Life provides Adult Day Care Services for older African and African Caribbean residents in Hammersmith and Fulham, and are experts in meeting the needs of elders with a range of issues such as Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes and physical and visual impairments.

The garden has a permaculture design which was installed by Permablitz London ( and filmed by BBC Gardeners’ World and broadcast in June 2018. The garden is one of Permablitz London’s showcase gardens.

Find them at the Nubian Life Resource Centre, 50 Ellerslie Road, London W12 7BW
