Culpeper Community 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. It 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.
This year we are working on replanting our wildlife area with native plants and pergola path restoration.
Open daily to the public, the project encourages the involvement of many disadvantaged groups, as well as children and young people. We are also developing a new project to tackle isolation in our local community.
In 2012 the garden won a Green Flag Community Award and a Gold Award for Best Community Garden: Islington in Bloom.
