Here’s a chance to visit one of our amazing members’ gardens – Streatham Common Community Garden, set in the heart of Streatham Common. Streatham Common Community Garden is a historic walled garden situated within the Rookery public garden. Formerly a kitchen garden of the Rookery (the last manor house that stood at the top of the hill, built in 1786), the garden was overgrown when the community took it over in 2010. This very special ‘secret garden’ has been brought back to its former glory thanks to hundreds of hours of volunteer work, and is now a welcoming and productive place, where people from all walks of life can come to learn about organic gardening and growing of fruit and vegetables.
Streatham Common Community Garden, a Blooming Lambeth Awards winner, is opening its gates to all of us to come and share in the joys and pitfalls of community gardening. Tuesday 18th June, 6.30 – 8.30pm. Streatham Common Community Garden is located within the Rookery on Streatham Common (address of the ). Detailed instructions on how to find the garden is on the Visitors Info page.
