Brockwell Park Community Greenhouses (BPCG) is an independent environmental charity operating from a former municipal greenhouse site in the centre of Lambeths Brockwell Park. Our 3742m2 site comprises a series of demonstration gardens and facilities including two commercial-sized greenhouses. We use the space to host a variety of educational initiatives loosely based around wildlife, food growing and environmental education. Our activities include open access community volunteering, school visits, family events, courses and workshops, and a range of specific projects targeted at vulnerable sectors of the local community such as our weekly gardening sessions for SEN schools and community groups.
We are open to the public and for drop-in garden volunteering four days a week, Thursday to Sunday, 10am to 4pm (GMT) and to 5pm (BST). On Monday to Wednesday the site is available for education sessions for children run on the site as closed and bookable sessions.
