Abbey Gardens does The Big Lunch

From veteran visitors to our littlest gardeners, we’ve had people of all ages at the garden for The Big Lunch. And we’ve had food from all corners of the world: Freshly-made Chinese dumplings, lamingtons, quiche, pizzas made in a portable pizza oven… all in weather that’s brought the Mediterranean to West Ham.

We’ve even done some gardening – watering has been a great way of cooling down (grown-ups with the hose, kids with water pistols).

Welcome, all, a big thank-you to our lovely singer Lucy May Walker, to Cath French for donating her design skills to the publicity, to everyone who cooked and helped – and we just love the banner drawn by one of our youngest supporters.

Our picnic rug shows food stories collected in 2012. We hope that today has made new food stories for everyone who came along.

Join us for some gardening or just to enjoy the space. Our gardening sessions are on Tuesdays 1pm-3pm, Thursdays 4pm-7pm and Saturdays 11am-4pm.
