Food growing in the heart of Clapham
We are a community garden, sustained by dedicated volunteers, aiming to get their hands dirty, get outside, grow vegetables and have a good time. Growing everything from squash to salad and veg for your Sunday roast.
We pride ourselves on providing an area for the local community to discover the joys and benefits of growing and cooking their own food, with the added benefit of taking home freshly picked fruit and vegetables.
Are you interested in the community, gardening, sustainability, the environment, your health or knowledge sharing?
If the answer is yes, then join us on Saturdays from 10am for our weekly gardening session, with tea and cake at around 11.30am. And on the first Saturday of the month we stay open later for a laidback lunch.

At last month's workshop we chitted potatoes and in this session they will be planted in bags - a great way to grow in a small space.
You'll also learn about propagating plants from seed, indoors or out.
Find out which compost to use along with information about feeding, watering and seedling care.
Seed sowing will include tomatoes, carrots and beetroot.
This is a pay-what-can-workshop. Everyone welcome but numbers are limited.

Clapham Common Management Advisory Committee (CCMAC) and partners will be creating a wildflower haven to bring beauty and biodiversity to the Common this year. The project has been awarded a grant from the Mayor’s Greener City Fund, but also needs to raise extra funding to buy plants.
Volunteers to help with ground preparation and planting are also needed! Can you help?
Come along to the Colour Your Common Launch in our garden to find out how to get involved, sow wildflower seeds – and join us for tea and cake. Everyone welcome!

This is a pay-what-you-can workshop. Everyone welcome, but numbers are limited.

The Small Change, Big Difference campaign has launched in the capital to help Londoners make a positive difference to their health, pockets and the planet by getting savvier with their food.
Small Change, Big Difference is about eating more healthily and sustainably, reducing the food we waste at home and recycling what we don’t eat.
Bandstand Beds is hosting four workshops being run by facilitators from this campaign over two Saturdays...
21 & 28 April 2018 – 10am to 12pm and 1pm to 3pm
(with lunch in the garden)
