The Wilds is a new multi-purpose community, ecology and event space, open to the public since Summer 2021. The building hosts the GROUNDED coffee shop, a cooperative set up by local people. It is also home to the UK headquarters of Swedish company Envac, which manages the innovative vacuum waste disposal system across Barking Riverside.
The Wilds includes a variety of spaces that are available for public and private events, including a sunken garden. Co-working desks can be hired Monday to Friday, perfect for working-from-home days.
The Wilds regularly hosts workshops and events, find out more here.
