Cobham Community Garden opened late in 2015 on the Leg O’Mutton field, just behind the Allotments. We aim to encourage the local community to become more engaged in growing and eating local, sustainably produced fruit and vegetables and to promote a greener lifestyle through recycling, composting, reducing water use, etc.
We will be growing a range of vegetables, soft fruit, flowers & shrubs. Anyone can come to help dig, plant, tend, weed, water & crop or help with promotion & management activities.
Everyone involved with the garden is a volunteer. Do come and help us.
The garden aims to finance its activities primarily through selling produce to members. Anyone can join and membership is free. Members are not obliged to spend any time in the garden if they do not wish to, but will receive our newsletter and be entitled to discounts on the purchase of garden produce. These discounts start at the basic level of 10% for everyone and increase dependent on the number of hours actually spent working in the garden.

How to engage with the Community Garden group
There are many things that are needed to make the garden work better. We do have some funds from earlier fundraising but need to make it last, so if you could let us have any of these things we would be very grateful.
Garden chairs & tables (so our volunteers can have a rest & enjoy the garden)
A few paving slabs (so we can protect the muddy bits)

Volunteer with us
Come and join us. There’s plenty to do, the work is fun and as energetic as you want it to be. Meet community. Not to mention grow and eat locally grown food (at a discount!).
The creation of the garden would not have been possible without the generous contributions, support and funding of those who took part in our Crowdfunding at the end of 2014, the Community Foundation for Surrey, the Elmbridge Community Infrastructure Levy and Councillor Mary Lewis. Some of the rewards from the crowdfunding still need to be planted – this will be happening soon.
