An Urban Oasis
The St. John's churchyard features a walnut tree, two beautiful cork trees grown from seed, blossom trees, three huge planes, a carefully planted Garden of Remembrance, an apiary in a bee-friendly location, a wild garden and a large parterre with box, bulbs, hellebores and many self-seeded echiums.
Our gardening needs weeding, pruning and leaf-clearing on a weekly basis. Mentored by expert horticulturist Jonathan Trustram, the St. John's Garden Volunteers learn new skills as they seek to build a place of calm in the bustle of Waterloo
Anyone is welcome to join us as a volunteer gardener! Gardening takes place on Tuesdays, and is welcome to anyone, regardless of skill level. For more information, or to volunteer, please fill out the form below.
