The Garden

There will be celebratory events at OGSW 2019 to mark the tenth anniversary of this kitchen garden, created from a disused tennis court. The garden's 48 raised wooden beds maximise food-growing space, and most of those involved in the garden grow fruit, vegetables and flowers. Plotholders 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 plotholders have won awards too. The garden featured in The Great British Garden Revival BBC2 series in 2013.
