Funding for development of the Community Garden

We are pleased to announce a funding award from the Postcode Local Trust – a charity funded by players of People’s Postcode Lottery – to support the development of the park’s Community Garden.

Plans are now in motion to add new growing beds, a greenhouse and a more inviting landscaped seating area for members and visitors.

We shall also be investing in tools and a solar powered irrigation system for neighbouring growing beds looked after by service users from South London and Maudsley NHS Trust.

Community Garden members, Friends of Ruskin Park volunteers and local community garden landscapers Urban Canopy will work together to put the new elements in place. Stephen and Bill from Urban Canopy will also run a programme of gardening workshops in the park which is due to start in January 2020.

If you want to help, come along to our Community Gardening sessions from 10am to 12.30pm every first and third Saturday of the month or email
