A message from CHARLTON COMMUNITY GARDENS…

Charlton Community Gardens are keeping in touch this autumn with a ‘Takeaway’ bag.

Children, with a little help, can enjoy these activities at home.

– Plant a bulb in a decorated jam jar
– Make and colour a Halloween mask
– Make a plastic flower to put in the jam jar
– Enjoy some quizzes and word searches

Collect your free bag from our Cafe Orchard (Community Orchard) – next to the Old Cottage Coffee Shop in Charlton Park on Thursday October 29th between 10.00 and 12.00. Children must bring an adult with them.

Please email us to book your bag – your child’s age and gender would be helpful: charltoncommunitygardens[at]gmail.com.

You’ve got another chance to buy plants this weekend

Our green-fingered spies tell us that last Thursday’s Charlton Community Gardens plant sale was a roaring success, with lots of locals taking the opportunity to wander around the area and pick up some new plants from front gardens.

So they’re doing it again. This time, it’s on Sunday afternoon from 3pm to 4.30pm, from gardens in Inverine Road, Elliscombe Road and Charlton Lane.

Charlton Community Gardens Plant Sale: Take a wander around SE7 and buy fresh plants

Plant sale ad at allotments
The plant sale usually take place at Charlton station

Every year, Charlton Community Gardens holds a plant sale at Charlton station. Then the coronavirus struck and put paid to that.

So this year, the group is having a socially-distant plant sale on Thursday 21 May between 4.30pm and 6.30pm – you’ll be able to buy from local front gardens in Eastcombe Avenue, Sandtoft Road, Bramshot Avenue, Elliscombe Road and Inverine Road. You can pay online or through honesty boxes.

It’ll be better than the queue for B&Q and you can get some exercise into the bargain.

More details at the Charlton Community Gardens website.
