The Corbett Community Garden

The Corbett Community Garden

On the 18th October last year volunteers put the finishing touches to the Corbett Community Garden based at the new Healthy Lifestyles Centre at Abbotshall Road.

The garden was made possible with £5,000 funding awarded to the Archibald Corbett Society by the Mayor of London’s Pocket Parks fund and has a raised vegetable bed systems with some at different heights for children and wheelchair users.

Other features include an edible hedge along the Abbotshall Road fence line with five different varieties of fruits, olive trees and miniature apple and cherry trees, a path bordered with lavender and surrounding areas planted with bulbs supplied by the Catford South Assembly ‘Bulbs in Bloom’ project.

As Spring approaches there will be another volunteer day to fill the raised beds with compost and plant vegetables and sow a ‘Grow Wild’ wild flower garden for the summer. All vegetables and fruit that is harvested will be used by Delicious most Nutritious to provide delicious meals in the Community Café.

Volunteer days will be led by Karen Cooke and Frank Hooks, so come and join us. For details of future volunteer days please click here to be sent details.
