The Garden

Hammersmith Community Gardens Association took over the management of Ravenscourt Park Glasshouses and walled garden in 2004 after they fell into disrepair. The association has brought the garden, situated in Ravenscourt Park next to the café, back to life. The display glasshouse showcases fruit and flower growing, with an emphasis on scented varieties. The Shelf Life project is extremely popular with children and adults, as it shows plants growing in food containers, for example tomatoes in a ketchup bottle and potatoes in a crisp packet. The second greenhouse is a nursery, used by volunteers to raise seedlings and cuttings for the site and other local community gardens. The beautiful walled garden includes a medicinal herb border and vegetable plots.

Capital Growth garden: 2153
