Walworth Allotment Association

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 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. We grow a variety of fruit, herbs and vegetables organically, with the occasional floral flourish!
This is possibly one of the most urban vegetable growing sites in the world - the London Eye is almost in sight, while the roar of the cricket crowds at Oval can be heard while gardening on a summer’s day. You're welcome to come and enjoy our creative horticultural inner-city delights.
