Bandstand Beds

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 drop in and see us.

Our garden is open…

Saturdays • We are a fun group of people who meet to garden between 10am and 1pm with tea and cake at around 11.30. There is a table at our main gate with freshly harvested produce which is available to the public for a donation. Some Saturdays we also hold a laidback lunch or bring and share picnic.

Keep Growing Mondays • A gardening session for the over 55s. A chance to get outdoors in the garden, relax and meet people.

Wednesday evenings • During the summer months we meet on a Wednesday evening from 6pm until around 7.30pm to garden and harvest veg.

If you would like to become a member of Bandstand Beds you can join here.

    Come along to our garden on Clapham Common for some frightfully yummy food cooked using our home-grown pumpkins to make curry, pie and soup... Served from 1pm.
    There'll also be creepy cake, some wicked biscuit decorating, fang-faced peashoot pots to plant and scarecrow building.
    And a guess the weight of the pumpkin competition to win a family-size tub of Nardulli's ice-cream!

    We've a spooky feeling it'll be lots of fun - so don't be afraid to come along and join us. Everyone welcome!
