Welcome to the Brandon estate gardening group.

All residents are welcome to come down, get involved, and be involved in what we plan to plant and grow next year.

We are also part of the Walworth Community Garden Network (CGN) and are working with other community gardeners locally.

The planters were originally put in place by Southwark council to surround and protect the Henry Moore statue – ‘Reclining Figure No. 3’ which was placed on the estate shortly after it was built.

There is also a wildflower meadow, directly in front of the Henry Moore statue.

A group of residents decided to get involved with helping with the planting, and have taken on the responsibility of watering, weeding, and maintaining the plants.

We have access to water and hosepipes at the base of Cornish, Cruden and Brawne houses, and in this hot weather, we really need to water the planters about twice a week.

It is actually quite therapeutic, and in the sunny weather quite a nice way to relax and de-stress, after a long day at work.
