See Ruskin Park Community Garden

A small area of one of London's lesser-known parks, Ruskin Park Community Garden is a peaceful spot, and has been run by volunteers since May 2010. It's all about growing vegetables, aiming to educate and enthuse local people about them in an area with scant vegetable patches and open to all who are willing to come along and have a dig.

Though their mission statement reads like something straight out of the hippy buzzword encyclopedia - think inner-city carbon-reducing sustainable inclusive diverse community volunteering & recycling - it's clear enough that they like growing their own food and teaching urbanites about the joys of nature and gardening, and that is very admirable.
