John Evelyn Community Garden - grows fresh food, using permaculture and organic methods. We aim to develop a vibrant food economy and expand local food production in our area of Deptford, London SE8. Our garden has conventional rotation vegetable beds, perennial beds, a Forest garden, Pond and Polytunnel. Organic growing principles are always applied. The Garden is also a free space for people to relax, enjoy and learn from nature. We run Workshops and Courses on food growing, permaculture, cooking and composting. We work in partnership with local community groups. Volunteers are welcome to come and contribute, share skills and learn new ones. Community Sector Volunteering have sent corporate volunteers, on a number of occasions, to help establish the garden and to undertake specific tasks. Our Garden was awarded a "Lewisham in Bloom" Award, for 2011. Our Garden is supported by NHS Lewisham & Greenwich Choose Health.
