Market Gardening - learn about growing fruit & veg to sell at Mobile Garden City


NEW for 2017
Mobile Garden City has set up a market garden! Come get involved in a range of tasks from sowing, planting, harvesting, watering, prepping, packing and distributing produce that has been freshly grown at Mobile Garden City. We are also keen for our volunteers to get involved with helping us spread the word about our veg to local residents and businesses.

Mobile Garden City on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is a community-led space where local residents and community groups can connect with nature, network and learn new skills through our programme of free workshops and activities. The movable community garden is located on the corner of Temple Mills Lane and Honour Lea Avenue on Chobham Manor, near Chobham Academy.

The aim of the Mobile Garden City is:

  • To create a welcoming, beautiful and movable public garden
  • Demonstrate the ability to create productive and vibrant community spaces on meanwhile sites
  • Provide food growing, socialising and training opportunities for the whole community.

EVERY FRIDAY! Suitable for newcomers and regular volunteers with relevant skills and experience.

Gardening activities are suitable for all ages and levels of experience. Please wear closed-toe shoes and sensible clothes that you don’t mind getting mucky. All equipment and tools are provided.

For more information or to reserve your place at a session, please contact These times may be subject to change and new activities will be added.
