Growing into 2017 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? Join us on Saturdays for our weekly gardening meet-up (sometimes coupled with a picnic full of fresh veggies!) and get involved with your community.

Spacehive Crowdfunding Project

We are currently running a crowdfunding campaign to raise £5,149 to install pathways to make our community garden a welcoming and safe place for everyone. Each Saturday we have a stall at our community garden on Windmill Drive and all money donated for produce is pledged to our Spacehive crowdfunding project.

We have until 7 October 2017 to achieve our total goal and we are already more than half way there, but there’s still a long way to go and time is running out… Can you help us achieve our target? If you would like to pledge a donation you can do so by clicking on this link to Spacehive

    Following on from our hugely popular Cook-up for London Food Month, food bloggers Howell and Harte return to delight us with more of their culinary delights for this supper club in our vegetable garden on Clapham Common.

    The evening promises to be a fabulous display of fresh food and al fresco feasting. With a menu based around the garden's seasonal produce, the dishes will champion the virtues of growing your own veg and healthy eating.

    Aside from taking the opportunity to showcase our amazing food-growing plot, the supper clubs are being run to help raise £5000 towards our Spacehive crowdfuding to install hoggin pathways to create better access for disabled visitors to the garden as well as making it generally safer for those less steady on their feet. This will allow us to continue our mission to facilitate skill sharing amongst the whole community, in a safe and welcoming space.

    Menu may change depending on what is available in the garden, but the food will be entirely vegetarian.

    BYOB and let us know if you have any dietary requirements
