The Wolves Lane Horticultural Centre is a unique community resource on Wolves Lane in Wood Green, N22 5JD. The former 3 acre plant nursery has commercial glasshouses, a rare palm house with tropical plants, cactus garden, rainforest area, professional standard kitchen, classroom space, barn and woodland area. The buildings and glasshouses are in need of refurbishment which the consortium has committed to in development stages as well as investment in sustainable energy systems to heat the palm house.
In May 2019, The Wolves Lane Consortium was officially formed. Ubele along with Crop Drop and Organiclea are now legal partners and ‘stewards’ of the 3 acre site. This will enable Ubele to build its’ Community Engagement and Development, Leadership Development and Social Business offer at Wolves Lane. It also means that Ubele is now located on a site which it can support and help create as an example of ‘good practice’.
The gates at Wolves Lane Horticulture Centre are open every Sunday 10-4pm for the sale of plants and food produce from the site users.
