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.

    Colour Your Common

    1pm to 4pmWindmill Drive, Clapham Common

    We’re working with Clapham Common Management Advisory Committee (CCMAC) to create a wildflower haven to bring beauty and biodiversity to the Common this year. The project has been awarded funding from the Mayor’s Greener City Fund, but…


    An area of ground on the Common between the Spinney Nursery and our garden on Windmill Drive needs to have turf removed ready to plant the meadow. Work has already started, but there is a long way to go.



    Fancy a free gym session on the Common, then why not join us for digging the dirt this Saturday - followed by tea and cake?


    If you can’t make it but want to know more about the project, email or follow @colourcommon1 on Twitter
