Community Garden

A community space improving the lives of people across Merton, managed by our fantastic Community Garden Volunteers

Opening times: Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays 11am – 2pm (weather permitting)

The garden sits on a once derelict site, which was donated to Wimbledon Guild in 1992. After sitting empty for many years, in June 2014, volunteers from local businesses cleared the site of head-high brambles and transformed the garden. Following organic, permaculture ‘no dig’ methods, the volunteer team grow plants and organic produce and make space for native hedging, bee-friendly flowers, and a wildflower meadow.

The polytunnel, kindly donated by B&Q Foundation, helps our volunteers grow more plants and vegetables all year round. The organic produce is used in our HomeFood Café, and the volunteers host regular plant sales throughout the spring and summer. For a small donation, you can pick up anything from tomatoes, potted herbs, cabbages, cauliflower to indoor houseplants, and all donations go back into maintaining the garden.

If you would like to visit, the garden is open to everyone between 11am – 2pm on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays (weather permitting). Come and say hello to our friendly volunteers, learn more about gardening, and support your local Community Garden.

If you would like to donate any gardening equipment or find out more about how you can help, please do get in touch: email volunteer@wimbledonguild.co.uk or call our reception team on 020 8946 0735.
