The Garden

This multi award-winning community garden project - named after herbalist Nicholas Culpeper - received an ‘Outstanding’ rating in the 2018 RHS ‘It’s Your Neighbourhood’ scheme. It has also received the RHS National Certificate of Distinction, won Islington in Bloom's Best Community Garden category and received the additional Pattenden award for the best wildlife entry. The garden has a communal lawn, ponds, rose pergola, wildlife area and a dry garden, inspired by Beth Chatto as part of Islington’s climate-change adaptation strategy. Culpeper Community Garden works with disadvantaged community groups, provides a teaching resource to local primary schools and stages events/activities for members and locals.
