Who will I help?

Feeling like a real workout while taking in the view at one of London's beautiful community green spaces?

Brockwell Park Community Greenhouses is a wonderfully varied gardening space in the city. The site contains an orchard, two big greenhouses, vegetable beds, a wildlife pond and a herb garden. This means there is a great diversity of tasks that need to be completed - It takes a lot of work to maintain this natural haven away from the noise and bustle of the city!

How will I help?

Your volunteering work will include a wide variety of maintenance tasks and improvements around the site. You'll cultivate the gardens so that they can continue to serve as a much needed educational escape from the city.

You're likely to find yourself:

• Growing vegetables, fruits and herbs
• Planting, seeding and repairing things
• Keeping the gardens accessible and clean for visitors

This opportunity will be a real workout and you'll provide local residents with a wonderful place to come together and be outside!

    It was a great day and I would definitely recommend it to my friends. We spent the whole day in the garden digging weed. We were supplied with all necessary equipment and our supervisor was a great fun to work with. He invited us to story telling event for kids which is happening there once a month. At about 3 PM he organized a tea time break, which was very nice of him. We gathered around the table and he told us many interesting stories about different plants.

    A colleague and myself from Tideway spent on of our volunteering days at Brockwell Park gardens – and what a great day we had! Yes, doing maintenance stuff like weeding, and planting out salad seedlings, but best of all helping to design and plant up the new sensory bed – what great fun we had, the hours just flew by. It’s a beautiful place, with very dedicated and nice people running. Highly recommended for those with a green thumb or just enjoying a tranquil environment!

    The mix of staff and volunteers was great and everyone was very friendly and approachable. Cat S asked what I was hoping to get out of the day and made sure she tasked me with a couple of things that fitted the bill, Chris was very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and happy to share his time with me, David and Doug were both really friendly – overall a really good experience working for a worthwhile cause and one I would happily repeat. Thank you to both Brockwell Park Community Greenhouses and Benefacto!

    Great day spent at the community greenhouse. The staff and volunteers were all very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Cat S was very helpful and gave all the guidance. As I have not done much gardening before, she explained the tasks very well. All in all a great experience, would love to do this again.
