Food growing in the heart of Clapham
We are a community garden run by dedicated volunteers, aiming to get their hands dirty, get outside, grow vegetables and have a good time.
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.
We growing everything from squash to salad and veg for Sunday roast. And all of this lovely local produce is available to our members and passers-by for a donation, which goes towards keeping our garden growing.

Over 55s Grown-Up Gardening & Wild Times
Froglife's Leaping Forward for Dementia Project dementia-friendly Wild Times. But now the winter is upon us it’s way too cold to continue holding the sessions in our community garden – even in the polytunnel. So, by popular demand we’re moving somewhere warmer.
From 17 January 2022, these Monday sessions will move to The Spinney, which is just a short distance from our garden on Windmill Drive. In this warm indoor space, we’ll be able to continue our fun-filled garden, nature and wildlife related activities, along with arts & crafts workshops. And of course, there will also be lots of tea, cake and good company.
