BAC Community Garden

A MULTI-FUNCTIONAL GREEN SPACE SITUATED IN THE HEART OF BATTERSEA

Located on Town Hall Road, our BAC Community Garden has something for everyone: a place to unwind, edibles to harvest and a place to get out in the fresh air and socialise with some gentle gardening.

Over the pandemic, the BAC Community Garden has provided a space for our local community to maintain social contact. Within the scope of restrictions, small groups met regularly to grow and harvest food, learn about planting from seed and feeding the soil eco-system.

PERMABLITZ AT BAC'S COMMUNITY GARDEN

NEXT EVENT: SUN 21 AUGUST 10am – 4pm

Come along to our next Permablitz event happening Sunday 21 August: a FREE day of mini-workshops and a chance to come together to learn more about planting and gardening.

A Permablitz is a day for people to come together to help develop a community garden, which is wildlife-friendly and includes edible plants. Permablitz days were created by our partners Permablitz London. They are a great opportunity to meet new people local to you, learn more about gardening and help us develop BAC’s community garden.

Lunch will be provided and there will be activities suitable for all, including children – everyone is very welcome!

Nearest station: Clapham Junction

If you want to come along you need to let us know so we know numbers for lunch, which is provided, and we can give you all the specific details. Book your place by emailing: communitygarden@bac.org.uk

Further Permablitz dates in 2022 will be on Saturday 1 October and Saturday 26 November.

HISTORY

As part of a large-scale capital project, Battersea Arts Centre installed a set of permanent artworks to celebrate the old Town Hall building’s vibrant 127 year history. Each installation represented a value, such as courage, integrity or hope, which radical people and unsung heroes from our past and present, have embodied in their lives and great deeds. Part of the way through this project, our Grand Hall was destroyed by fire in March 2015. The generosity shown to us at that time, from large corporations to local individuals, inspired us to create a community garden which represents the 13th value; the value of Generosity.  

This garden is a thank you from Battersea Arts Centre to everyone who helped us.   

The garden design is inspired by that same spirit of generosity. It aims to create a co-operative gardening community of people, plants and animals, including the microscopic life in the soil, in which all contribute and all benefit.
