We are happy to announce that we have been able to re-open the garden
to the public, on Sunday afternoons.
We want to make sure you can visit the garden safely, so we have some new
guidelines in place. We’re asking everyone to ‘book’ a slot online, so we can
manage the number of people in the garden at a time.
The garden is now open on Sunday afternoons. There will be one slot
every Sunday: 12.00 until 15.00.
Glengall Wharf Garden is a peaceful green oasis at the east side of Burgess Park,
in north Peckham, managed by and for local people using sustainable growing
techniques and permaculture to develop the site as a place to build skills, community
and well being for all our gardeners.
The Garden includes food growing beds, a forest garden, a healing yurt, beehives,
chickens, ponds, and a campfire.
In non-COVID times we run regular events in the garden.
There are many ways to keep in the loop and support the Garden’s growth.

Although we had to take different measures due to COVID-19 this year, we still carry out some essential food growing. For several years we have grown food for the local foodbank in Peckham. As the economic impact of coronavirus starts to hit, and more people start to lose their income, we think it’s more important than ever to keep doing this.
We are carrying out our food growing with a small number of core volunteers who are adhering to government guidelines around social distancing in the garden and working according to strict hygiene rules. If you are interested in what these are, you can download our Covid-19 food growing policy here.
If you would like to help support our work growing food for local foodbanks during this difficult time, you can become a Friend of Glengall Wharf Garden for just a few pounds a month. This money helps us buy supplies and equipment to continue our food growing.
It is free to join in with our open sessions and we are always looking for volunteers to help out.
The Garden is otherwise run by volunteers in different working groups
