Growing Southwark/LCRN the facilitators of the ‘Re-use Chelsea’ project would like to keep a log and photos of where all the items from the ‘Re-use Scheme’ at Chelsea are ending up….The RHS Chelsea Flower Show was amazing this year and there are lots of wonderful materials available for distribution to non-funded growing groups across London:

So let’s start here from Ruskin Park Community Garden:

hi gardeners,
thanks so much to everyone who came yesterday! we planted up most of the vegetables from the eden project, finished digging the rest of the beds, and started sieving them. the garden is looking great and abundant – we have spinach, rocket, chard, tomatoes, beans, pumpkin, crown prince squash, broccoli, cabbage, cavolo nero, broad beans, corn, beetroot, carrots, lettuce, basil, coriander, rosemary, thyme, and oregano. and i’m probably forgetting something.
we have organised a watering rota – thanks to all who have signed up.
we’ll have a dig day wednesday 3-5pm so we can sieve enough of the beds to plant up the rest of the seedlings. i have a big box of seeds so we can then start growing from seed, and we have some jerusalem artichokes to plant. there’s a fair amount of interest in potatoes so i’ll get some as well.
all the best,
p.s. photos on

This sounds really exciting! We saw something in today’s South London Press. Could you spare anything for the Moorlands Estate Community Garden in Brixton? We could collect.
