Bandstand Beds

Food growing in the heart of Clapham

We are a community garden run by dedicated volunteers, aiming to get their hands dirty, get outside, grow vegetables and have a good time.

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.

We growing everything from squash to salad and veg for Sunday roast. And all of this lovely local produce is available to our members and passers-by for a donation, which goes towards keeping our garden growing.

Are you interested in the community, gardening, sustainability, the environment, your health and wellbeing or knowledge sharing? If the answer is yes, then drop in and see us – or take a peak at our activities From Seed to Feast in 2018.

COVID-19 – GARDEN OPENING.

During the current Covid-19 crisis, to make our growing space as safe as possible we are restricting numbers and who can come along to our sessions in the garden to members only.

Gardening sessions are held on Saturday mornings from 10am to 12.30pm and Wednesday evenings from 6pm to 7.30pm.

On Saturdays we have a stall at our main gate where, for a donation, non members can pick up freshly harvested veg and pickles and jams made from our produce.

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

Our community garden is self-sustaining and has been built with grant funding, in-kind support from Lambeth Council and generous donations from individuals. If you would like to make a donation to keep our garden growing please click on this link.

    The Colour Your Common wildflowers have been a fantastic addition to Clapham Common, and here's an opportunity for you to help make this area even more beautiful next year.

    To mark National Tree Week the Mayor of London is giving away 55,000 trees and we’re getting 50 hedgerow whips to plant in two areas along Windmill Drive.

    Would you like to lend a hand? Then join us from 10am.

    Tools and gloves provided but do wear clothing and footwear suitable for gardening, and there'll be refreshments at the end of the morning.
