Glengall Wharf Garden
Glengall Wharf Garden is a community garden at the east end of Burgess Park on the Surrey Canal Walk.
A large and diverse natural space, the team run activities that bring a wide range of people to the garden, grow vegetables, herbs and fruit to share, hold regular events and celebrations and welcome everyone to help develop this beautiful space for the benefit of local people and visitors. Glengall Wharf Garden is a Permaculture Association Land Centre and it promotes permaculture through forest gardening, hugel mounds, organic techniques, sustainability and more.
