Olden Garden is open to the public. Volunteer days are open to everyone, not just Garden members. New volunteers are welcome. Gardening experience is not necessary. Join us for coffee and cake/biscuits, make new friends and learn more about the Garden.
Come and volunteer on Tuesdays any time between 10am – 4pm. Maria, our gardener, will offer a variety of tasks.
Or come to a Saturday volunteer day – on the third Saturday of the month when our gardener Caroline will guide you.
Remember to wear appropriate footwear.
Our accessible toilet will be open.
If you would like further information about volunteer workdays email firstname.lastname@example.org
Could you help plant bulbs in our newly revamped rockery, or collect leaves to fill our composters? Or could you help plant raspberry bushes? Come and join Caroline our gardener at any time on Saturday 19th, between 10am and 4pm. No experience needed. All ages welcome. Coffee and cake provided. This is our last Saturday of the year before the winter break. Tuesday volunteering days will continue until 29th November.
A very successful potato harvest was held at half term in Olden Garden. Families and children came along to dig up the potatoes. Several varieties of potato came up, blue, yellow, red, purple and white – a rainbow of colours! And everyone had a bag of potatoes to take home.
Thank you to the volunteers from Acacia Avenue, Islington, who came along to aerate and top dress our lawn – helping to improve drainage and increase nutrient retention
Thank you to the BIG Alliance volunteers who renovated our steps – filling them with 30 bags of new shingle
