In 2010, the residents of Summer Street decided to give purpose to an empty patch of land tucked away behind the street, which had descended into a makeshift dumping area. The resulting Summer Row Community Garden is a communal space, with community members from the surrounding area joining the garden on a voluntary basis, to grow herbs, flowers, fruits and vegetables which are harvested and shared each week. In addition, the garden committee organise community events held in the garden. There is a composting system onsite and most of the water requirements are met by water harvesting facilities that collect rainfall from the poly-tunnel and neighbouring buildings. Organic growing is practised as much as possible.
