Common Growth

Common Growth is a gardening project on Sandbourne Road that has restored an unloved patch of land to create a community space. They are holding an art event between 2pm-5pm today and would welcome visitors who fancy learning more about the project or want to get involved.

The space, on the edge of the Sandbourne Road housing estate, is roughly 150m2 and is owned by Lewisham Council. It was formerly a play area and pedestrian access route for the houses on the Sandbourne Road estate to the West of the car park. The play area and rights of way were closed to the public and the area was maintained by Lewisham Homes.

If you can't go today but are interested in supporting the project, email them at
