Chill Out in the Garden with Farm the City London

Join Farm the City to help turn the Sensory Garden into a public food growing space and outdoor kitchen. Gardening is a great way to relax after a hard day’s work, or when the kids are in school.

All volunteers will receive pick of the bunch when it comes to harvesting the organic food too so you get something to eat for your time as well as learning something new.

We give any surplus vegetables, salad and herbs away to local people who want to try organic food, but can’t afford to buy it.

Volunteer sessions run every Wednesday from 1pm until 3pm, are free and you can drop in at any time. The Sensory Garden is located on the corner of Golborne Road and Elkstone Road in W10, next to the train tracks.  If you can’t make Wednesdays, check out the notice board for other chances to help make the garden into something new for everyone to enjoy.
