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 and amazing wildflower haven on the Common, opposite out garden on Windmill Drive.

    The plan is to have strips of wildflower planting running across the grass and with the help of GoodGym Lambeth digging off the top layer of turn one of these is now almost complete (pic right).

    But there are about five more to do... HELP!

    Fancy a free workout on the Common this Saturday? Then get down digging with us! And for those who fancy something a little more sedate there's loads of seed sowing to be done.

    But it won't be all work and no play, we'll be round off the afternoon with Easter eggs (maybe hidden) and
    hot-cross buns.

    Sounds like your idea of a fun afternoon on the Common? Then head for our garden on Windmill Drive at 1pm.

    Everyone welcome!
