The Garden

Walworth Allotment Association was founded in the 1970s by a passionate local Southwark community who wanted to grow their own fruit and vegetables as close to home as possible.

This site, which includes a wildlife area, pond and thriving beehives, has developed over the years through various planting and community initiatives. The current twice-yearly working party has reclaimed industrial/garage space to create a pleasant, intimate communal urban green space.

We have 16 plots, some of which are shared, with a very diverse group of keen gardeners and we grow a variety of fruit, herbs and vegetables organically.
