Walworth Garden was first established in 1987 when local residents set about reclaiming a derelict plot of land in a heavily built-up inner-city corner of Walworth in Southwark.

Thirty years on, the garden is a hub of the community, boasting a learning centre, wildlife pond, food-growing, orchard, horticultural training centre and the Garden Services Division, which employs locals to create and maintain gardens. 

A registered charity and social enterprise, in 2015 the garden gained its fifth consecutive Community Green Flag Award and won an 'Outstanding' certificate in the RHS/London in Bloom 'It's Your Neighbourhood' award scheme.

The garden, described as a 'mini Kew Garden' by our London in Bloom judge, is now open seven days a week, and also sells a whole host of plants, compost and good-quality terracotta pots.

Capital Growth garden: 438
