About

Do you like being outside? Vegetables? Getting your hands a bit dirty? Then come visit us at Bandstand Beds on Clapham Common.

Formed by a group of gardening enthusiasts with an interest in sustainability, local food production, and sharing skills we maintain three spaces and have an abundance of food and fun!  We pride ourselves on providing an area for the local community to discover the joys and benefits of growing their own food, for nearby residents whose homes don’t have gardens or an outside space, those interested in sharpening their gardening skills, and even those who simply want to spend time outside.

We meet every Saturday. Activities are endless and can range from digging, planting seeds, pruning, weeding, building planters, watering and so on. Not only will you spend time outdoors in the garden and pick fresh vegetables straight from the source, we have a wealth of collective gardening knowledge base and occasionally share a picnic together.

Bandstand Beds Association is a volunteer-led community project. Our garden has been built by volunteers helped by Lambeth in preparing the site, and with grants and money fundraised by our members. Our seeds, plants and materials are either donated or bought using money from membership and donations. We receive no regular funding. But you can always pick up our fresh produce for a donation.

Who doesn’t like cheap vegetables and plants? So come and see us on Windmill Drive, Clapham Common!
