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. She 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 and the local food agenda has come to the fore: in 2012 Fiona created Lambeth Poly and Bandstand Beds both of which have evolved to the next level in 2013. See community cropping for more info
The Viveka vision is inspired and sustained by her yoga practice.
