The Garden

In 2019 this kitchen garden, which was created from a disused tennis court, celebrated its 10th anniversary. The garden's 48 raised wooden beds maximise food-growing space, and most of those involved in the garden grow fruit, vegetables and flowers. Plot-holders donated the proceeds they received from Open Gardens weekend 2017 to the Grenfell Tower Relief Fund after debris from the fire landed in some plots. St Quintin’s won an Outstanding classification in London in Bloom between 2016 and 2018 ('It’s Your Neighbourhood’ section) and again in 2022 and 2023. It was also awarded the London in Bloom Excellence in Gardening Award in 2015. Individual plot-holders have also won awards. The garden featured in The Great British Garden Revival BBC2 series in 2013. It is still much loved by its plot-holders as a green haven away from the hustle and bustle of urban London.
