The Garden

Named after the herbalist Nicholas Culpeper, this green oasis is a unique project with small plots for local people and community groups to tend. We are a true community garden, open to the public 365 days a year.

The garden has a communal lawn, ponds, a rose pergola, wildlife area and a dry garden, inspired by Beth Chatto as part of Islington's climate-change adaptation strategy. The garden contains a vast array of shrubs and herbaceous perennials.

We work in partnership with disadvantaged groups in our community and provide a teaching resource to local primary schools. We organise a number of events and activities for our members and local people.

In 2017 the garden was again rated 'Outstanding' by the RHS It's Your Neighbourhood Scheme, and we were awarded the prestigious  RHS National Certificate of Distinction. We also won second prize in the Best Community Garden Category in Islington  in Bloom.
