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.

    Common Cook-ups

    7:00 pmWindmill Drive Garden

    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.
