Morden Hall Park's Community Kitchen Garden

The Community Kitchen Garden at Morden Hall Park was started in 2017 by local people, for local people. The garden provides a safe space where people can learn new skills, meet like-minded people and build confidence.

Volunteer-led sessions are run for any local person to sign up to, no matter what their ability or experience is. The main aims of the programme are to improve the physical and mental health of local people by getting them outdoors and active in the garden.

The seasonal crops grown by the team are shared with local food banks such as Sustainable Merton and the Merton Community Fridge.

Getting involved in the community garden

You can join a regular session as an individual or small group. Sessions run weekly on Tuesdays from 2.30–4.30pm and on Saturdays from 10am until noon.

The kitchen garden is for everyone and new groups who want to get involved are always welcome, whether they’d like a one-off visit or to schedule a regular time.
