The Albany garden is a green oasis in the heart of Deptford, providing an opportunity to get outdoors, grow food and connect with nature and wildlife.

Our Come ‘n’ Grow gardening activities are a chance to get your hands in the dirt and discover the joys of growing your own food, from potatoes to pumpkins – or pea shoots to sow and take home and nurture on your windowsill.

There are also ‘untidy’ areas of the garden left to create habitat for bugs and other invertebrates, wildflowers for pollinators and two ponds providing a home for tadpoles and frogs.

The garden is also the perfect place to sit and relax with a drink and food bought from the Albany’s CaffA.

“The Albany Garden is a really special place. It’s made me feel more at home in an often isolating city, enjoying simple pleasures with others, and giving me the opportunity to get my hands dirty and connect to green and growing things when I’m sick of all the grey and concrete around me.”
