Blooming Lambeth is a celebration of growing, greening and innovations happening in Lambeth

Lambeth Council’s Housing Management Services, in partnership with Incredible Edible Lambeth, want to recognise and celebrate what people on council estates, streets and blocks 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.

  • 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.
