From the Maryon Park Community Garden group…
As part of Capital Growth’s London-wide Edible Gardens Day, Maryon Park Community Garden will be open to the general public from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm on Saturday 19th September.
The Maryon Park Community Garden is a not-for-profit community organic food growing project providing plots for local people, volunteer gardening opportunities and a Forest School for local primary schools. The unusual terraced garden features 16 raised beds, an orchard, a children’s area, a wildflower bank, pond, forested space and art installations.
The Open Day will feature guided tours of the Community Garden and Forest School plus family activities; making lavender bath bag and bird feeders. Refreshments, teas and coffee, will include herb teas from the garden. Volunteers will lead local history talks and the garden fundraising stall will be open with damson jams for sale.
Maryon Park Community Garden is on the site of the Old Plant Nursery behind the park fence. Follow the path and open day signs from the main park entrance in Maryon Road by the Park Lodge, 126 Maryon Road, SE7 8DH.
The Garden is in walking distance of Charlton and Woolwich Dockyard stations. Nearest bus stop is St Thomas Church on the 380 bus route. Bus routes 161, 177,180 and 472 serve the north side of park.
