Phipps Flier Pic Draft V2


Phipps Bridge Community Garden is one of Sustainable Merton’s flagship projects and an example of community gardening at its best!

In 2008, our team rescued 4 allotments from disuse and helped bring the rest of the site into use as mini-plots for local residents.

Through regular commitment, our volunteers have transformed this space into a social and productive food growing hub, and the garden now produces an abundance of fruit and veg – up to 750kg per year!

We are always looking for new volunteers to join the team. You don’t need experience or any special tools – just some old clothes, sturdy footwear and a willingness to get stuck in.

Sustainable Merton’s CEO and regular volunteer – Tom Walsh

We meet every Wednesday morning at 10am (weather dependent). We normally work until early afternoon with a coffee break at 12.30, though the amount of time you put in is totally optional.

Lighting up the Kelly Kettle going for a well deserved cup of tea!

Everyone is welcome! Come along with friends, family, or as a community or corporate group. (Please note – children under sixteen must be accompanied by an adult)
