PHIPPS BRIDGE
COMMUNITY GARDEN

Established in 2008 by Sustainable Merton, in collaboration with the National Trust, Merton Abbey Horticultural Society, Merton Council and the local community, Phipps Bridge Community Garden is an example of community gardening at its best.

 

Our team rescued 4 allotments from disuse and helped bring the rest of the site into use as mini-plots for local residents and the site has flourished for over 10 years.

The local community has been involved throughout the project, contributing time and skills, as well as donations of recycled wood pallets, compost, tools, and much, much more. 

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.
