Saturday 2nd Dec


in the gardens


A community garden in the heart of Camberwell

Lettsom Gardens is a community garden in Camberwell, London SE5. It is bordered by Grove Park to the north and Grove Hill Road to the south. All local people are warmly welcomed to become members. The gardens are especially enjoyed by people without gardens of their own. The gardens are run by a charity, Lettsom Gardens Association, and access is with a key and an annual membership.


The space is divided between woodland, allotments and a tarmac sports pitch. The three areas creating a well used community utility. A small area of grass hosts many a picnic after school in the summer, and there is also a large wooden swing.


The allotments on the site are managed by a separate organisation: see Lettsom Allotments Association for details.


The gardens host two open day during the year. A summer gathering held in June and a bonfire night on the nearest weekend to November the 5th. These are well attended local events and a good opportunity to meet other members.


Please take time to look over the rules for the gardens and follow the instructions in the Membership section of this site to become a member.


Welcome again to Lettsom Gardens, and we hope you enjoy the gardens.
