We are very excited and privileged to be involved in this fantastic local project, bringing green fingers to the surgery grounds.
We now have 8 planters stationed next to the surgery which we are growing vegetables in. All patients are welcome to get involved.
There will be a weekly gardening session every Wednesday from 10.00am for 2 hours. No experience needed as there will be support on hand. Get to know your neighbours, and keep your vegetables once they are ready to eat!
If you’re interested in joining, please either ask at the front desk, contact Jonathan our Practice Manager or just pop along on Wednesday to find out more.
You can read about the impact of the scheme in a guardian article which Dr Sharma contributed to at this link: Guardian Article on the Lambeth Food Co-op
