Volunteers needed on Saturday 19 June

Come along to our volunteer workday – make new friends and join us for a coffee. We need more volunteers!

As a volunteer at our workdays you do not need to be a member. And gardening experience is not necessary; our volunteer gardeners will guide you. We will be open from 10am – 4pm.

Please remember to wear suitable shoes and to bring your own gloves; disposable gloves will be available. Our accessible toilet will be open. If you have any questions, or to let us know you or a friend might be interested, email oldengarden1@gmail.com

Our lawn

We have laid new turf on a damaged section of the lawn, leaving an area for new planting and a space for new paving to be laid in the autumn.

Olden Garden brings musical comedy to the Chelsea Fringe

In celebration of the Chelsea Fringe 2021, we filmed two special musical events in Olden Garden. ‘Air on a G-string’ is a musical comedy, with a rap celebrating the Chelsea Fringe, played by Kate Shortt on her cello in our garden and greenhouse and in front of the graffiti. ‘The Swan’ is a beautiful cello solo from ‘Carnival of the Animals’ and also played by Kate Shortt. These online events continue our tradition of marking the Chelsea Fringe with a musical celebration.
