The Garden

In 2019 this kitchen garden, which was created from a disused tennis court, celebrated its 10th anniversary. The garden's 48 raised wooden beds maximise food-growing space, and most of those involved in the garden grow fruit, vegetables and flowers. Plot-holders donated OGSW 2017 proceeds to the Grenfell Tower Relief Fund after debris from the fire landed in some plots. St Quintin’s won an Outstanding classification in London in Bloom between 2016 and 2018 ('It’s Your Neighbourhood’ section) and the London in Bloom Excellence in Gardening Award (2015). Individual plot-holders have won awards too. The garden featured in The Great British Garden Revival BBC2 series in 2013.
