Streatham Common Community Garden is a welcoming place in a beautiful secret walled garden where people from all walks of life come together to learn and volunteer. The Garden is a community resource for promoting food, organic gardening, sustainable living, good health and positive community interaction.
Individuals can get involved with any aspect of growing in the communal areas of the Garden. Our Learner Plot project runs annually as a project which supports local groups, charities and individuals to have a plot in the Garden for a year. They learn how to grow organic food, meet other people, attend monthly training sessions and receive individual support from a professional Community Gardener. Nursery children come for weekly gardening activities and we host a variety of groups throughout the year from high school pupils doing work experience to a Streatham Library’s Older People’s Group visit.
The Garden is open on Wednesdays and Sundays from 11am-3pm and open to all with regular free workshops and events throughout the year. Visitors can come in to have a look around, get involved with volunteering or buy organic produce from us on Sundays in the growing season. We also have an Education Room which is available for bookings for small groups/events.
