Maryon Park Community Garden: ‘socially-distanced plant and jam sale’ this weekend

Maryon Park Community Garden

We’ve not had too many notices about real-life community events recently, what with one thing and another, so we’re very pleased to relay news of Maryon Park Community Gardens’ annual harvest event:

Instead of our usual ‘Urban Harvest Open Day’ event, this year there will be a ‘socially-distanced’ stall at the Community Garden Gates on Saturday 19th September, 1-4 pm.

The ‘Plant and Jam” sale will feature Aloe Vera, Geraniums, Salvias, Small Cacti, Damson and Wild Plum Jams. The stall will be set up at the garden’s double gates and pop-up shop.

All donations will go to the work of the Community Garden and Forest School.

How to find Maryon Park Community Garden

Access from the main park gates next to the park keeper’s lodge. Address: 126 Maryon Rd, London SE7 8DH.
