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.

    Sowing Winter Salad

    10:00 amBandstand Beds, Windmill Drive, Clapham Common

    t’s easy to grow leafy greens throughout the year. If you think your veg plot will be empty during winter, then come along to our winter salad workshop and learn how and when to grow oriental winter salads and more. You can be eating flavoursome fresh all though winter and you’ll be amazed at the variety of leaves which are hardy enough to remain outside in our coldest months.

    It's easier than you think - and you'll be doubling plant stock in no time!

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