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.
Are you interested in your gardening, sustainability, the environment, your health and wellbeing and your local community? If the answer to all or any of these is yes, then why not join us? For information about membership click on this link.

Our community garden is self-sustaining and has been built with grant funding, in-kind support from Lambeth Council and generous donations from visitors to our produce stall on Saturday mornings.
