The Garden

Established in 1987 after locals reclaimed a large, derelict corner of land near busy Walworth Road, Walworth Garden has grown with the community to become an award-winning peat-free and 'beyond-organic' garden and garden centre, as well as an established horticultural charity and social enterprise. With its own Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) accredited school of horticulture, three glasshouses, a wildlife area, vegetable garden, trained fruit trees and apiary, Walworth Garden gained its eighth consecutive Community Green Flag Award in 2019, alongside an ‘Outstanding’ certificate in the RHS/Britain in Bloom ‘It's Your Neighbourhood’ scheme. It's garden landscaping company also employs and trains local people to design and construct the gardens of local residents.
