Fresh food to Peckham Foodbank

Our trainees and volunteers spend every thursday growing some amazing food which is  delivered straight to the foodbank by bike. Less than half a food mile! Local food at it’s best, getting a veg bag to 20-25 families a week.

Spring is in the air

Spring has sprung! Crocuses and daffodils are out and the apricot tree is blooming. Hopefully the cold weather hasn’t stopped pollination. Last year we harvested many kg of fruit for lovely jams and chutneys.

We are delighted to announce that we have new funding from Awards for All for Grown in Peckham and the wider project. We hope to grow loads more produce so each week we can donate fresh veg bags to the Southwark Foodbank.

The Wakefield and Tetley Trust are also supporting Herb Tuesdays. Look at the project pages for more detail.

We hope to see you at the garden in 2018. We have some wonderful things planned, and hope to have more feasts and cooking events for everyone to learn about and enjoy fresh produce.

Growfest a hit!

Our first Growfest was an activity packed day filled to the brim with local people of a green fingered persuasion.

Bringing together local gardeners, there were new skills to learn, labels, pesto, printed bags, seed bombs and bug hotels to make, good food to eat, bees to inspect and seeds to share and save.

We also listed over 50 growing projects in (mainly) north Southwark, and that’s just a start. Slowly we’ll pull together a list with details we can digitise and share.

Southwark Growers is the new network. If you want to sign up email Sue at southwarkgrowers@gmail.com.

Grown in Peckham

Thursday growing is back!

Come and join our community gardener Ben and other volunteers in growing food at the garden.

Along the way, you’ll learn lots about growing and get to take home a share of the days harvest.

Please bring something to share for lunch, and dress appropriately – the best thing is covered shoes and weather protection including suncream.

Happy gardening!
