Event description
Learn how to grow flowers and food at Pop Farm, an urban garden in the heart of Brixton.

About this event

The purpose of the project is to make gardening more accessible to local people, educating, informing and sharing food growing knowledge in the community. We do this by showcasing how it is possible to grow edible and ornamental plants in an urban environment and how much beauty it adds to the space.

Join us at Pop Farm an urban garden sitting in central Brixton.  Starting at 10am we will be gardening on site, tending to our edible and ornamental sections of the site.

 We have all kinds of interesting plants growing including African Blue Basil, Black Krim Tomatos, Palm trees, Amalanchier and Lomquats.

Maintaining this green oasis involves a range of tasks, suitable for all levels offering a unique chance to learn new skills and knowledge in:

- Caring for edible plants from planting out and harvesting to learning how to manage pests using organic methods

- Caring for ornamental plants including pruning, tying in and taking cuttings

All welcome! Join us on Thursday mornings (10am - 11:30am)

If you are having trouble booking, or you would like to discuss bringing a group to pop please get in touch: info@urbangrowth.london

Extra info:

We'll meet at 10am at the back of the site near the raised bed and spiral staircase.

Please wear clothing appropriate for the weather and which you don't mind getting dirty.

We will supply all tools required, but please bring your own gloves and face mask if you prefer to wear one. You may also want to bring a bottle of water/ drink.

In the afternoon our team moves on to different sites. Please feel free to join us after lunch at the Brixton Orchard from 1-2:30pm  Book your free ticket on Eventbrite.
