Cultivating Kensington & Chelsea is a volunteer-led project that was registered as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) with the Charity Commission at the beginning of 2016. CKC’s volunteers grow herb and vegetable seedlings to sell onto community kitchen garden plot holders and the wider public. The funds from the sales will support the community kitchen garden sites through the CKC Grant Fund.
Open Garden Square Weekend 8-9 June 2019
Cultivating Kensington & Chelsea Community Garden Cluster
Sunday 9 June 11:00 – 16:00
CKC is delighted to be taking part in the Open Garden Square Weekend for the first time this year and will be showcasing the Olympia and Russell Road Community Kitchen Gardens and the greenhouses on the market garden site. The Greenhouses are truly a hidden gem, located out of view, on a dis-used railway platform, at Kensington Olympia Station where, with the support of the Council’s Community Gardening Team, vegetable seedlings and herbs are grown and sold by local volunteers with profits going back into the Community Kitchen Gardens project. A selection of seedlings and herbs will be on sale at the The Greenhouses on Sunday.
