Chiswick House Kitchen Garden has won a prestigious Green Corner Award.

Run by the Conservation Foundation, these prizes were awarded to ‘green corners that make the capital a brighter, greener and healthier place to live and also enrich the biodiversity of the capital.’

Local resident, historian Gill Clegg, who nominated the garden for the award, said, “As a disabled person, the kitchen garden is my little bit of heaven and one of the most interesting community projects taking place in Chiswick, my locality.

“I think the garden deserves the award because it fulfils an educational function and engenders community spirit, and because it brings so much joy to those who work in it and those who visit.”

Awards were presented at Covent Garden by David Bellamy, co-founder of the Conservation Foundation.
