Community and Outreach

We are a community resource and want to make sure that our neighbours always feel welcome.

Workshops and activities for Lambeth residents

We hold regular learning events for local residents in Lambeth. These have a gardening or food/cookery or art focus and will include for example, making a terrarium, planting a window box, soup making etc and usually cost around £15, which includes all materials. Check back on this page, or sign up for our mailing list below to find out when our next workshop will take place.

Volunteering Opportunities

The Saturday Morning Gardening Club is a great place to meet other amateur gardeners and adopt the garden at St Mary’s. No experience at all is required, just bring enthusiasm and we’ll provide the rest. Sessions are from 10am – 3pm but you don’t have to stay for the full time, just drop by when you have a chance and we’ll be glad to see you.

Upcoming gardening club dates

  • July 22nd / 29th
  • August 5th / 12th / 19th
  • September 2nd / 16th / 30th
