Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, the garden is currently closed to the public. We will still be farming fresh food for the local foodbank, in line with government protocol and advice.
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. Click here for a site plan
Its free to join in with our open sessions and we are always looking for volunteers to help out in our garden or care for our chickens or bees.
