Loughborough Farm
The Loughborough Farm is a community food growing project in Loughborough Junction. The Farm is well attended and goes from strength to strength since its launch in August 2013, which GoodGym Lambeth contributed to. They are now in the process of building a network of growing spaces around Loughborough Junction on pieces of land that are currently derelict or underused. Food grown is for local consumption and volunteers get training that can suppport them in finding employment.

The Loughborough Farm is a patchwork of community growing spaces bringing people together in the heart of Loughborough Junction, South London.

The Loughborough Farm is a community garden open to everyone who wants to learn organic growing skills and meet their neighbours. They have been around since 2013 and provide a healthy outdoor space for people to engage and connect with each other and nature.

This week we are heading down to help out at the Farm and Orchard as well & Tasks will be: Weeding, watering and mulching of fruit trees. Some digging and preparing ground for more planting of fruit bushes. 🌷
