A two-acre oasis of greenery in Islington, north London.

Over time, a herbaceous garden, an orchard, a series of vegetable terraces, a small meadow and an acre of woodland have all emerged from a railway embankment.

Olden Community Garden is a volunteer-run Charity, with the object to promote a community garden for the benefit of people living or working in the London Borough of Islington. We will be seeking new Trustees for election at our AGM in September.

A self-sustaining garden

We use harvested water, we compost all the green waste and create wildlife habits from woody debris.  There is a fruitful orchard and a flourishing vegetable garden.
