The Garden

This award-winning garden project was launched in 2013 after the local community and Islington Council joined forces to create the Lever Street Community Garden. There are 17 raised wooden beds which enable local families and individuals to learn about and enjoy growing vegetables, fruit and flowers. These are surrounded by fruit trees, shrubs and flowers. There is also a water supply, seating area and communal toolbox. The garden received the prestigious Green Flag Award in 2017 and 2018 - the mark of a quality park or green space. It also received Islington's Pontecorvo prize in 2014. With the council's agreement, the garden opens monthly to visitors.
