Wimbledon Guild Community Garden

opportunity-location Wimbledon, London, UK
opportunity-dates 01 Sep 2019 - 01 May 2020
A community space improving the lives of people across Merton, managed by our fantastic volunteers. The garden sits on a once derelict site donated to Wimbledon Guild in 1992. After sitting empty for many years in June 2014 volunteers from local businesses cleared the site, laid a water pipe and erected a shed and polytunnel. Compost bins were made from old pallets, and raised beds constructed using rustic wooden railway sleepers and other donated materials. The volunteers also dug a pond, laid paths and paving. Native hedging, bee-friendly flowers and a wildflower meadow were planted with habitats for birds and insects. Our team of volunteers follow organic, permaculture ‘no dig’ methods and are dedicated to growing organic produce which we use in our HomeFood Café. Whether you'd like to contribute occasional 'work parties' to get out of the office, or you could support a particular aspect of the work our volunteers do, we'd love you to support this wonderful space.
