Grow Mayow Community Garden is an idyllic garden in South London Sydenham.
We are a not for profit community garden run and maintained by volunteers         responsible for the up keep of the garden.
We run weekly activities for which we charge a fee to help us pay for the 
garden's up-keep.

It's the perfect place to both learn and relax, and is a great place for kids .
favourite place to visit for local families, gardeners and wildlife                       watchers from further afield.

Grow Mayow community garden consists of 2 sites
The front garden access is through the park,
this site of the community garden is open 7 days a week  during park opening hours.
The back garden is open Mondays to Thursdays and at weekend events.

FRONT GARDEN

L A B Y R I N T H

There is a Labyrinth in our front garden made by local artist Maria Strutz. 
She made it with stones but over the last few weeks the stones and pattern have disappeared. 
Perhaps it wasn't very obvious. 
But like Andy Goldsworthy's work,  art can disappear into nature










Next year Spring
