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.
On Saturday 21 October, come along any time between 10am – 4pm, for our Open Day. Visit the Garden, plant spring bulbs and celebrate our Meadow Regeneration and Biodiversity project, part-funded with a grant from Groundwork’s Our Space Award. Children’s activities will be available. A great opportunity to make new friends and learn more about Olden Garden. Coffee and cake provided.
Following the AGM, Olden Garden members celebrated progress with delivering our Meadow Regeneration and Biodiversity project funded by Groundwork’s Our Space Award
