Description:

The Centre for Wildlife Gardening is an idyllic wildlife haven tucked away behind a quiet residential street in South London. It is a favourite spot for local families, school children, gardeners and wildlife watchers, having grown beyond recognition since the London Wildlife Trust created it in the late 1980s from an old council vehicle depot.

The centre’s demonstration wildlife garden has a range of mini-habitats, including four ponds, chalk bank, wildflower meadow, woodland copse, herb garden, stag beetle sanctuaries, insect hotels, and raised beds demonstrating permaculture. Do visit – you could see newts, toads, foxes, or even a kingfisher!
