Welcome to our 2017 gardening season

We’re starting our new gardening season with our Saturday drop-in session on 4 March – with a new time of 11am – 4pm. Our weekday sessions are Tuesdays 1pm – 3pm and Thursdays 4pm – 7pm.

We garden and harvest together: join in for as much or as little time as you can spare, get stuck in with some spadework or do one of the delicate jobs. New gardeners are always welcome – no experience necessary. Or just come and say hello and enjoy the peaceful green space.

Our AGM will take place on Sunday 5 March at 2pm, at School 21, London E15 4RZ. It’s a great opportunity to find out more about the running of the garden and volunteer your organisational or practical skills for the behind-the-scenes work that helps make the garden grow. Please arrive promptly at the back entrance of School 21 on New Mount Street. The main front gate and reception on Pitchford Street are closed at the weekend.
