Cultivate is a hub, for public use, promoting tree and plant growing in the developing area of Southwark, in London. It aims to help locals looking after their environment as well as cultivating new skills. It believes people deserve the opportunity to develop new skills that will not only benefit locals themselves but also their environment and community.

The main area inside the building is a Garden, shaped like a staircase, providing space for training on gardening. rnThe whole building uses transparent PV
solar panels on the roofs that: generate electricity; allow natural light to come in; and reuses water from the rain.

The rainwater that falls in the roof is collected and kept in a unit placed under the garden. The water is then used for toilets and planting. The hub also offers spaces for art courses, talks, lectures, film screenings, a shop and a canteen to help increase community interaction and engagement to the cause.rn
