GP practices across Lambeth are doing something different

We build gardens in GP surgeries so everyone who wishes to learn how to grow food can do so in a safe, secure and supported environment. 

Our GP garden communities provide a space and a reason for people to socialise, learn and grow food together. People who participate are improving their own health and wellbeing.

This results in people feeling less isolated and better in themselves and, as GPs are now reporting, they don't require so many appointments. 


“The Lambeth GP Food Co-op shows the power of co-operation and collaboration, and the kindness and shared purpose that is at the heart of the NHS.”

Dr Phil Hammond​, GP and broadcaster


“As a person with depression and anxiety problems, I find the project a good way to meet people and combat a sense of isolation I often feel. It has also motivated me to utilise my balcony space to grow food and has also reignited my love of cooking....”


Simone's story

Simone lives alone. She has lived in Lambeth all her life, bringing up three children whilst holding down a job at the local hospital. Her children have moved out of London, and most days they phone her but sometimes they forget. Simone gets by, but the diabetes is a bother and it's getting her down...

Some days she doesn’t leave the house. Her neighbour Rita brought Simone to the Lambeth GP Food Co-op garden at her local GP surgery. Simone wasn't that keen to go but Rita thought a few hours away from her flat would do her good. Simone loved it.  Everyone was friendly and welcoming. Simone made new friends and is looking forward to going back again.  She enjoys being in a garden with people who are friendly and who she can trust. Lambeth GP Food Co-op has helped hundreds of people like Simone to meet new friends and learn how to grow food together. We know there are more like Simone out there. They are not hard to reach, but our job is to make it happen. This is where you come in. We need your help to continue our work. Thank you from Lambeth GP Food Co-op
