The Garden

Lever Street Community Garden is a small and lively award-winning garden with 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 and there are also composting facilities, a water supply, seating and communal toolbox. The garden was launched in 2013 as a joint project between the local community and Islington Council and it opens monthly to visitors. The garden received Islington's Pontecorvo prize in 2014, and was judged to be Islington’s Best Community Park in 2019.
