St. Raphael’s Edible Garden

Our beautiful Community Garden emerged from a local campaign by residents to develop a food growing project for the community. With the help of hundreds of volunteers, St. Raphael’s Edible Garden now has a teaching tipi, a chicken coup, a wildlife pond, a fruit tree orchard, compost bins, plenty of raised beds and a stunning pergola. 

Although the garden is managed and run by Sufra NW London, it is here to benefit the community. The garden provides a therapeutic space from where we can invest in the skills, health and wellbeing of local people whilst improving the appearance of the estate and giving residents an opportunity to come together, have fun and grow food. 

Apart from producing a wide range of fresh fruit, vegetables and eggs that can be distributed at our Food Bank or used to prepare food in our Community Kitchen, we usually run a wide range of services and activities available for anyone who wants to get involved.

Coronavirus Service Update

Due to national COVID-19 restrictions, we have temporarily suspended offline activities and learning in this space. We will provide further information on when our services can return to normal in due course. We are currently supporting local residents on St. Raphael’s Estate to grow their own food and providing growing beds, soil and plants/seeds.
