Record-breaking harvest at Phipps Bridge Community Garden



From June to December 2020, our Community Champions harvested a whopping 1,020kg of fresh produce, grown with love and care at Phipps Bridge Community Garden. This is a fantastic result and the first time our team has hit the ton mark! Around a quarter of this was donated to Merton's Community Fridge as part of our Sustainable Food Places programme.
