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.
Thank you to Tree Matters for donating the bark to cover our muddy woodland paths
Come along to Seed Swap Sunday in Olden Community Garden, organised by Quill Street Allotments
– bring your quality surplus seeds (bought or saved – but labelled)
– bring envelopes and pens to take swapped seeds
– meet fellow gardeners and share local knowledge
Everyone welcome! Meet your friends and neighbours here! Tea and cakes available!
All are welcome to volunteer in the garden – any time 10am-4pm. We will provide materials for children to make bird feeders. Bird spotting sheets will be available. Or come for Open Garden and walk in the woodland. Listen for the woodpeckers. Coffee and cake/biscuits will be provided.
Volunteer gardening days have resumed. We are preparing the ground for our new butterfly garden. And the rose bushes are pruned and ready to be fed – a huge thank you to Freightliners Farm for bags of manure!
Join us next week, Tuesday 14th and Saturday 18th February, for half-term family activities. Come along any time between 10am-4pm. Everyone welcome!
