Viveka Gardens is run by Fiona Law, supported by landscaping and maintenance associates.
Fiona is a garden designer and horticulture trainer, with long experience managing teams and working with volunteers. She also works part-time for Garden Organic as coordinator for the South London Master Gardener programme.
After a career in television journalism, Fiona gained a first at Birkbeck College in Biological Sciences, inspired by her passion for all things plant-related. Fiona then ran teaching and training departments, first in a community project and then at higher education college City Lit. She continued to garden for herself and others, and completed a Diploma in Garden Design at Capel Manor.
Community cropping has come to the fore: in 2012 Fiona created Lambeth Poly and Bandstand Beds both set to evolve to the next level in 2013.
The Viveka vision is inspired and sustained by her yoga practice.
