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.

    Early Spuds & Seed Sowing

    10:00 amBandstand Beds, Windmill Drive, Clapham Common

    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.
