Growing Southwark in conjunction with the London Community Resource Network have for the second year been asked to help ensure all items used in display gardens don’t end up in landfill but are collected, stored and then distributed to growing groups across London.

This is your opportunity to help support the ‘re-use’ of all items used in the display gardens at Chelsea! Volunteer by filling out this form: RHS Chelsea volunteer application form 2010 -final 1, please say where you got the form from i.e. this blog! and how you heard about it. We need people before and after the show; to promote the re-use scheme and then get the hardware onto transport to our storage site.

If you have access to any transport to help shift items to our site especially lorries with HiAB’s this is your opportunity as a business to help re-use Chelsea, please email if you can help with transport.

Who benefits: Those growing groups with no funding will have first dibs-watch out here for a form to apply for items for Chelsea for your group.

Volunteers needed to help out on stall


Peckham Power Event at Area 10, Eagle Wharf, Peckham Hill Street, SE15 5JT


Saturday, 17th April, 2pm – 6pm

Growing Southwark has a stall to demonstrate growing in recycled containers:

Propagator + wick

From a plastic bottle we can make a propagator or a self watering plant pot.

We’ll then sow a few seeds: 1 pot to take away & 1 for Cossall Estate Community Growing Project.

Let’s Grow Southwark together!
