LONDON : Getting Wavy @ NomaDICK CUMminity Garden (AKA Nomadic Community Gardens)

Hidden hippy gem in the midst of East London

Picture a massive, open-space den for free-spirited people to chill, dance to the tribal beats of live music and showcase makeshift art. Shoreditch is a known spot for people of artsy walks of life, and trust me, these people KNOW how to chill.


You can buy art, food and beer here

It wouldn’t be uncommon to overhear someone talking about their adventures around the world, for example we witnessed two people recognise each other from a hostel in Peru. Hippy vibes abound, this mystical haven doesn’t even have an official website,and it's run by volunteers.


Friendly people interact with each other, life is good

You won't find anything remotely close to Nomadic Community Gardens in London, perhaps even in the whole of UK. Definitely a must see if you're around, you can even get a little glimpse of it from our Shoreditch episode on YouTube below:

Some logistics / specifics to consider:

  1. There are a few little street-food vendors at the garden - if you are happy eating outside with plastic cutlery.
  2. They sell a very limited range of craft beers
  3. They accept cards
  4. Naturally, there will be queues - we normally bring our own booze and snacks from the nearby Tesco / Sainsburys
  5. There is a street-food market right outside of the NCG (weekends only) plus some off-license stores (that are slightly overpriced), but the food market is another must visit
  6. Kids friendly zone - bring your offspring for a nice sunny chill day and you won't regret. Provided you have kids
  7. If you want to witness the party in full swing including live music from the the stage and a massive bonfire - visit on a Sunday. The later it is, the hotter the party (and the bonfire)gets. If you're into a quieter setting - go during the week.


You're surrounded by artsy decor

Can’t wait to check this place out !


You absolutely have to! Especially on a sunny Sunday it's the perfect place to have a fun day!

Oh shit!! Did you guys go to Meeting of Styles too??? A few of us went on Monday to catch the end!

Awesome place, I wish I knew it was family friendly, my girls would have loved it!


Oh woah, not at all, I didn't even know what it was until I just googled it just now. Didn't know it was a thing, sounds amazing! Will keep that in mind.

Yeah on the weekends there are always a lot of kids running about the big wooden boat especially! Seems pretty chilled out - though there may be some pretty herby smells in the air hahaha ;)

Thanks for the resteem btw! <3


Yea Meeting of Styles is a festival they do every year apparently, @colossus39 told me about it on Sunday night, and we all managed to meet up there on Monday, the last day it was on. Really interesting experience :)

Noooooo wayyyyyyyy!!!

Were you guys there this weekend?



Hahaha, nah we were there a few weeks back!
