Send your entry by June 16 for ‘Blooming Lambeth’ Awards

We want to recognise and celebrate what people are doing to make Lambeth greener and greater. Take a look at the categories and nominate yourself, your neighbours, a community group, or your whole street or estate as an example of what’s best about Lambeth and the people who live here.


The categories are:

  • Home in Bloom – for front or back gardens
  • Community in bloom – if you have an estate or community garden to be proud of
  • Food growing – your individual (or your neighbour’s) vegetable patch, herb garden, window box or container garden
  • Innovation – The best initiative or project. Something you or someone you know has done to change things for the better
  • Windowbox or balcony – Some people can make the most out the smallest of spaces
  • Community food growing – for the group that gardens together and contributes to the community.

Prize for each category = £100 garden centre vouchers

What’s special about Lambeth?

Lambeth is a diverse borough Like most London boroughs, Lambeth is a series of interconnecting villages. Those villages are full of people growing and producing food (over 200 growing projects and counting) – but also full of people who suffer food poverty and ill health.
