The Garden

Brockwell Park Community Greenhouses (BPCG) is a community garden in the centre of Lambeth’s Brockwell Park. Our beautiful, large site includes an orchard, a series of demonstration gardens, a walled herb garden and two commercial-sized greenhouses. 

We help people grow through learning, and learn through growing.  7 days a week, we run a drop in garden volunteering scheme, school visits, family events, courses and workshops.  At BPCG, people learn about conserving the environment and wildlife, to appreciate nature and to understand organic gardening and food growing – and all in a very friendly community spirit.

Community Gardener: Cat Stevens
Capital Growth garden: 1956
