Campsbourne Food Growing Project

The Campsbourne Food Growing Project is a community garden where local residents grow their own fruit and vegetables in raised beds.

It is a friendly space where anyone can come and have a go at growing their own – no matter what their gardening ability.

Grow your own tasty fruit and vegetables and join our friendly community.

The vegetable plots were built on the site of a car park by Homes for Haringey with the help of Groundwork, a charity that transforms lives through gardening. The project is now managed by the gardeners themselves, and has 26 plot holders. Meetings and social gatherings are held throughout the year.

Why grow your own food?

Reap the benefits of cultivating your own fruit and veg

• Eat tasty, fresh, organic food.
• Meet other people and share growing tips.
• Enjoy the therapeutic benefits of being outdoors.
• Learn new horticultural skills.
• Enjoy an amazing sense of achievement.
• Cut down your carbon footprint.

Since the Campsbourne Food Growing Project began in 2011, we have grown many different vegetables, from salad crops to runner beans and tomatoes. We also have a raised herb bed (currently hosting oregano, thyme, dill, sage and lovage), two apple trees, a plum tree, a gooseberry and a blackcurrant bush. Recently, we have planted a couple of hops with a view to making our own beer. All our green waste is composted. We have plans to raise funds to build more plots and erect a polytunnel.
