Hello from Wanstead Community Gardeners!

We’re a community group, open to all people of any skill level, who are interested in transforming Wanstead’s neglected public spaces.

Our projects and spaces (click links for photos and more information):

We’re a good mix of Wanstead people – families with children, retired people and 9-5 workers and we all play our part in creating little patchwork gardens in each neglected space.

Some of us are gardeners, some have the oomph to get rid of unwelcome sycamores, shift heavy sacks, fix up trellis and all the extra stuff needed when creating living gardens, while some know little but want to be involved.

How do we do it?

We have fun! We run on enthusiasm, dig and delvery and a good amount of plant knowledge. We have no formal funding or grants, and we tend to use plants from our own gardens and allotments. We are grateful to others who donate plants and to Daisy the High Street flower shop and Co-op who gives us their walking wounded. We plant them and they dance.

We happily accept donations of time, funding, and plants.

Would you like to join in on the fun?

Wanstead Community Gardeners is a great way to get to know new people and to have a positive impact on the community. If you would like to join please contact us via email, drop a note in to the Wanstead Library to “Wanstead Community Gardeners”, or send us details using the form at the bottom of this page. You can also follow us on twitter @WanComGardeners. We hope to see you soon!
