SCCG is committed to making the most of the garden’s potential as an educational resource. We teach people about wonders of growing fresh fruit and vegetables via weekly volunteer sessions, food growing workshops, and activities for school groups.
Every year we offer a programme of free food growing workshops for beginner food growers. They are led by our Project Officer Ruth.
The workshops are free and you do not need to register in advance however it helps us to know how many people are coming. If you know you would like to attend then please email the garden to reserve a place – firstname.lastname@example.org. You are welcome to come along to one workshop or sign up for the whole series. * Note with the garden closed due to COVID 19 the workshops are postponed at the moment
Volunteering sessions are also a great way to learn practical gardening skills in a friendly and supportive environment. We are open for volunteering sessions every Sunday from 11-3pm and every Wednesday from 11-3pm . A full calendar of activities for the Sunday volunteer sessions can be found on our Events page.
For those with more time, there is the opportunity to have a Learner plot within the garden. We provide free training and advice and support groups, individuals, friends and families to grow their own organic vegetables. For more information go to our Learner plot page
We also hold occasional events and workshops to tie in with local and London-wide festivals such as Open Garden Squares Weekend, Streatham Food Festival and Urban Food Fortnight. For details of upcoming events please go to our Events page.
