Cottington Community Garden are holding an open day on 25th September from 11am - 4pm on Cottington Estate, Opal Street (just off of Kennington Lane). There will be a cake stall, a fire engine and a raffle. There will also be a chance to try grass head making and lavender bag creation and you'll be able to meet some of Lambeth's Master Gardeners. Apparently, there are still some spaces available for table top sales, so people are welcome to sell crafts or old bits & bobs, but check first (call 07912 883 970).
Also, you can take a look at their Project Dirt site, which gives more information about their members, and what they're growing. It sounds like a good way to improve your urban gardening skills or continue cultivating your green fingers. I didn't know that the Cottington Estate had a community garden, so it was obviously a reasonably well kept secret!
