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 join us on Saturdays from 10am for our weekly gardening session, with tea and cake at around 11.30am. And on the first Saturday of the month we stay open later for a laidback lunch.

    Want to grow you own veg but don't have much outside space?

    At this workshop you'll be shown how to make the most of the area you have available. We will divide the bed in the picture (left) into sections to enable us to grow a variety of crops.

    Throughout the growing season we will return to the bed to look at organic methods of dealing with pests and disease in the garden, weed identification and crop rotation to give us a year-round supply of fresh produce.

    This is a pay-what-you-can workshop. Everyone welcome, but numbers are limited.
