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.
Under an agreement with Islington Council which owns the land, the volunteer-run Charity – Olden Community Garden – maintains the garden area, with the object to promote a community garden for the benefit of people living or working in the London Borough of Islington. Olden Garden gives local people opportunities for education and recreation, with the aim of increasing involvement in the community and reducing isolation.
A self-sustaining garden
We use harvested water, we compost all the green waste and create wildlife habitats from woody debris. There is a fruitful orchard and a flourishing vegetable garden.
We are taking part in London’s Open House Festival on Saturday 16th September. Explore the garden, walk in the woodland, and join in our family activities.
Or try some volunteer gardening.
Everyone is welcome to visit at any time, 10am – 4pm.
Tea and cake will be available.
Like a butterfly!
Come along for our family activity. We will try butterfly spotting! Butterfly Conservation spotting sheets will help you identify the butterflies and day-flying moths.
Everyone is welcome to join in, any time 10am – 4pm.
Volunteer gardening tasks will be available.
