The Garden

Walworth Garden is an award-winning organic garden at the heart of the local community. It was established in 1987 when local residents reclaimed a derelict plot of land in a built-up corner of Walworth. Now, it's an established horticultural charity and social enterprise with its own QCF-accredited school of horticulture, three glasshouses, a wildlife area, vegetable garden and trained fruit trees and apiary. Its Garden Services Division employs and trains local apprentices to create and maintain gardens. In 2018 it gained its seventh consecutive Community Green Flag Award and an ‘Outstanding’ certificate in the RHS/Britain in Bloom ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ award scheme.
