Story

Charlton Community Gardens was set up in 2012 with the aim of bringing unloved and unused spaces back into productive community use.  The garden at Charlton Station was our first garden and was started in April 2013. It has been developed as an organic, demonstration garden to show that food can be grown in small spaces as well as provide habitats for wildlife. We have since expanded and have planted and maintain 2 small orchards and a small bed in Charlton Park. We have been active in supporting the Purple for Polio campaign and have planted hundreds of crocus corms locally.

A small management committee plans activities and they, together with volunteers, including local schools, maintain our gardens.

We were initially supported with a grant from the National Gardens Scheme/Royal Horticultural Society Elspeth Thompson Bursary, and was given use of the station area by Southeastern Railways. We also have beds at the station sponsored by local companies. We were also given a grant by Greggs the bakers, for setting up the orchards.

Our largest income is that generated by our annual plant sale. Volunteers grow extra plants which are then donated and sold at the station in May.

This year this will not be possible......... but the growing of plants and seedlings continues. We are hoping to sell our surplus from our respective homes. Changeless cash can be given, but payment via this site will also be most welcome.

Thank you for your donation, which will be used to purchase compost, tools, fix raised beds, pay for insurance, purchase plants and any other expenditure that gardening entails.
