About this group

We have moved! Please go to our new website www.streathamcommoncommunitygarden.org for our latest news.

Something green and wonderful is happening in Streatham Common. You can be part of it…

Streatham Common Community Garden, run by a group of local volunteers, is situated in a historic walled garden site next to the Rookery. It’s thought the site has been used for gardening for more than 200 years, but had been unused for several years and had fallen into a state of disrepair. The project was given the go-ahead by Lambeth Council, which owns the site, in 2011, and since then hundreds of local people have signed up to get involved, helping clear and transform the site, growing a wide range of fruit and veg, and attending workshops and talks on gardening and sustainable living.

We're open for community gardening every Sunday 12-4pm (11am-3pm from November-February) - so do join us. There's always a range of jobs to suit all - from digging to seed-sowing to making tea. Find us through the door in the wall at the bottom of the Rookery public garden (at the end of Streatham Common South). We have tools and gloves, but if you can bring your own (especially gloves), please do. Wear sturdy footwear and clothes suitable for gardening and weather-appropriate. Kids are welcome, as long as they're closely supervised. Please sign in on arrival. All abilities welcome!

Register your interest by clicking 'Join Group' on the right. You'll get email updates to tell you what's happening and how you can get involved. This could be volunteering to help us clear the site and plant and harvest crops, coming along to community meetings about the project, representing the group at local events, or benefiting from training and education projects.
