Bandstand Beds

Growing into 2017 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? Join us on Saturdays for our weekly gardening meet-up (sometimes coupled with a picnic full of fresh veggies!) and get involved with your community.

Spacehive Crowdfunding Project

We are currently running a crowdfunding campaign to raise £5,149 to install pathways to make our community garden a welcoming and safe place for everyone. Each Saturday we have a stall at our community garden on Windmill Drive and all money donated for produce is pledged to our Spacehive crowdfunding project.

We have until 7 October 2017 to achieve our total goal and we are already more than half way there, but there’s still a long way to go and time is running out… Can you help us achieve our target? If you would like to pledge a donation you can do so by clicking on this link to Spacehive

    This spooky cook-up will also (hopefully!) be the launch of our new accessible pathways that will be paid for with money raised from our Spacehive crowdfunding project. To celebrate the installation of the new paths there'll be warming soups, squash curries and pumpkin carving for kids, along with planting more planting blackthorn bushes (for sloe gin?) - for adults.

    Free event - everyone welcome!
