The closest most Londoners get to having their own garden is tending to the solitary withered plant that they bought to make their flat seem more ‘homely’ and now feel guilty about throwing out. But green-fingered south Londoners can now get their hands properly dirty at a new communal garden in Brixton.
The folks behind street-food hotspot Pop Brixton and social enterprise Urban Growth Learning Gardens have teamed up to launch Pop Farm, where locals get to plant flowers, herbs and vegetables and take part in free workshops. The garden opens on Sunday March 20, when they’ll be inviting you to don your wellies, bust out your trowel and sow seeds, plant cuttings and even tend your own potted plants to take home. Just try to keep them alive this time, eh?
