We are delighted to have been chosen to represent the London outdoors, community gardens and green spaces
However Grow Mayow Community Garden still relies entirely on voluntary contributions.
Visiting the garden is free, but your donations will help us to ensure we are in a position to continue providing a community space for everyone to enjoy
and most of all
to stay open.
Please support us with a donation.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!

'We want to give the community accesible art for all ages in this fantastic setting'
The mission of Grow Mayow Community Garden Project
To create a community hub that is a source of education and enthusiasm for growing and nature.
Our aim is to encourage inner city gardening with a view to reducing the carbon output involved in food production enjoying the garden nature and to enjoy this urban green space.
We host weekly sessions from Monday to Friday at the garden, for both adults and children
Three principles of permaculture that we apply are
Earth Care, People care, and Fair share
We have an Summer Art club on Mondays at 11 am a gardening nursery rhyne time on Tuesdays 10.15am Messy Art Play on Wednesday and Nature Kids on Thursdays
We host several events each year to expose the wider community to what different ways of gardening looks like, to build a community of volunteers, and to have fun.
Our ethos is sustainability – reduce, reuse recycle – and inclusiveness – we want garden users to reflect the diversity of the neighbourhood.
At Grow Mayow you will see many examples of permaculture food growing in practice. This includes companion planting – putting beneficial plants side-by-side, rainwater harvesting system, and recycling of materials.
As well as considering permaculture in our food growing, we aim to apply the idea of permaculture and interconnecting elements to our work away from the site.
This includes encouraging others to get involved in our projects.
• Support people to develop in horticulture skills.
• Training, workshops and other learning, we give practical support to local community groups and organisations that want to start or develop their own food growing projects.
Grow Mayow Community Garden relies entirely on voluntary contributions.
We hope you will have the chance to visit us in person, to wander around, to sit, relax and enjoy the garden.
