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.

    Seed Saving

    10:00 amBandstand Beds, Windmill Drive, Clapham Common

    People often ask if you can save seeds from your plants to sow the following year. In this workshop we will focus on saving seeds from popular crops such as tomatoes, lettuce, and beans. These are the easiest to save seed from as they are predominantly self-pollinating so you don't need to worry about cross-pollination between different varieties. We also will cover the benefits of saving seed, what to consider and a practical demonstration on how to do it.

    This workshop is a pay-what-you-can workshop, but numbers are limited. To be sure of a place on the day email ccbandstandbeds@gmail.com
