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.

    Colour Your Common Launch

    12pm - 3pmBandstand Beds, Windmill Drive, Clapham Common

    Clapham Common Management Advisory Committee (CCMAC) and partners will be creating a wildflower haven to bring beauty and biodiversity to the Common this year. The project has been awarded a grant from the Mayor’s Greener City Fund, but also needs to raise extra funding to buy plants.

    Volunteers to help with ground preparation and planting are also needed! Can you help?

    Come along to the Colour Your Common Launch in our garden to find out how to get involved, sow wildflower seeds – and join us for tea and cake. Everyone welcome!

    For more info or to find out how to make a financial donation to the project, email ccmacvolunteers@gmail.com
