Dulwich Vegetable Garden (DVG)

DVG 2014

After clearing the jungle in the back garden of Rosebery Lodge, DGG established the Dulwich Vegetable Garden - an organic fruit and vegetable community garden behind Rosebery Lodge in Dulwich Park - to encourage local people to have a go at growing their own. The garden started in 2009 and is still going strong in 2016. Volunteers share the produce when it is harvested.

From April to October, work sessions are held on Sunday & Wednesday mornings 10.30-12.30, come rain, shine or public holiday. In winter, it's Sundays only. Everyone is welcome. No gardening knowledge or equipment needed, but please wear stout shoes or wellies.

The garden is completely organic. We have a very active wormery and use the worm waste as compost and fertiliser; we brew our own nettle and comfrey 'tea' (definitely not for drinking!) and use old-fashioned kitchen cupboard remedies to treat garden pests.

We always need more help. Turn up at a session, or contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Our produce, including unusual varieties, is absolutely delicious and there's nothing better than taking a bagful home and cooking something really fresh for your lunch!

A warm welcome awaits you at the Dulwich Vegetable Garden.
