Charlton Manor Community Garden provides an amazing area for children and adults to discover all about gardening and growing fresh produce set in 89 acres of farm and woodland in southeast London. Children get involved in sowing, growing, harvesting and cooking edible produce. They learn the importance of composting and experience the natural wild surroundings and wildlife.

Developed with Olivier Blanc, creator of the Henri Le Worm App (a child-friendly app offering the discovery of growing and cooking). The app and its associated garden at Hampton Court Flower Show gave the inspiration to bring this digital world to life.

Visitors will find annual and perennial produce, fruit and vegetables, grown in raised beds and polytunnels for cooking and eating. Natural native hedgerows grow around part of the garden, with Woodlands Farm creating the backdrop to the garden, providing hay meadows, wildflowers, 300-year-old oak wood, livestock and a wildlife pond.
