The Garden

A disused tennis court has been transformed into a community kitchen garden where nearly 100 local residents grow a wide variety of fresh produce. The design of the site, comprising 48 raised wooden beds, maximises food-growing space, and plotholders tend to grow a mix of fruit, vegetables and flowers in a community-spirited atmosphere. Plotholders donated proceeds from OGSW 2017 to the Grenfell Tower Relief Fund. Debris from the fire landed in some of the plots and many knew people living in the tower block. St Quintin’s won an Outstanding classification in the ‘London It’s Your Neighbourhood’ section of London in Bloom in 2016 and 2017, and the London in Bloom Excellence in Gardening Award in 2015. Several plotholders have won individual awards too. The garden featured in The Great British Garden Revival BBC2 series in 2013.
