The Garden

Ravenscourt Park Glasshouses and walled garden have been brought back to life by Hammersmith Community Gardens Association after falling into disrepair. The association took over the management of the site in 2004. We will be opening our newly commissioned glasshouse for the first time as part of the  Open Gardens event. Volunteers use another greenhouse to raise seedlings and cuttings for the site and other local community gardens. The beautiful walled garden includes a medicinal herb border and vegetable plots.

Capital Growth garden: 2153
