Tayshan Hayden-Smith

Tayshan Hayden-Smith was born and raised in North Kensington, West London. He has brought life to his local community surrounding the Grenfell Tower amongst other green spaces in the local area by initiating the ‘Grenfell Garden of Peace’. He adopted the name The Grenfell Guerrilla Gardener at the time.

Despite being destined to have a successful career in football, Tayshan is also keen to empower young people through gardening and nature. He is passionate about being a part of a more inclusive environment in the horticultural scene. Following the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire tragedy, local residents sought support from one another through street art, music, silent walks and more. Tayshan took a different path, choosing this garden project as an outlet to bring comfort to the community during an incredibly difficult time.
