Food growing in the heart of Clapham

join us


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. Want more information? Read about our history here. Check out our blog to see what we’ve been up to recently. Or just want to dive straight in, come along and see what volunteering is like? Just get in touch with us!
