A new community garden in Old Paradise Gardens

This month, the Garden Museum has been getting started on our new community garden project in Old Paradise Gardens, a small park just around the corner from the museum. The new garden, designed by Dan Pearson Studios, features a patchwork of native, medicinal and wildlife-friendly planting. A hand-woven hazel fence encloses a large area for food-growing and community garden sessions.

The garden is still in its early stages, and local residents and museum patrons are warmly invited to join us for this exciting phase of the project. Weekly gardening sessions will run every Friday throughout the year. Join our gardener Gabby Boraston, to help with the planting and maintaining of this wonderful new garden space.

Gardening sessions are held every Friday in the Healing Garden, from 11am. The Healing Garden can be easily found in Old Paradise Gardens, Lambeth High Street, SE1 7JR
