Rocky Gardens on the Hollybush Estate is part of the Capital Growth scheme and provides free plots to residents to grow their own produce. Margaret Cox is a full-time volunteer in Tower Hamlets and works closely with local groups, voluntary organisations and schools.

Through her work, the estate now has a local nature reserve and 79 community growing spaces. These improvements have transformed the area and helped to alleviate the anti-social behaviour.
