The 4H Garden - Hops, Herbs, Health and Happiness!
2019 - marigolds grown from last year's seeds!
This is how it started!
Gardening for everyone
The garden is open to all
We plant lots of flowers which are great for bees and other pollinating insects
Most of the garden has been planted from seed
We were awarded £7,637 from the Greener City Fund Community Grants in January 2018. Islington Council allocated us a plot of land in Whittington Park which has been transformed into a garden filled with vegetables, herbs and flowers, mostly planted from seed. The The 4Hs stand for Hops, Herbs, Health and Happiness.
Islington Council also awarded us Local Initiative Funding to install paving. This makes the garden wheelchair accessible and easy for everyone to walk around.
We're sorry but activities in the 4H Garden won't be taking place for now. We're following government guidelines around the coronavirus.
However, during this time, Frederique, our volunteer coordinator, and Martin, one of our caretakers, are taking good care of the garden.
Last week the holiday play scheme enjoyed our early lettuce and herbs with their pasta lunch!

"I'm constantly amazed at how the garden impacts the community and me ... I like the fact it's in my community, five minutes from my home. That it's providing something for people to enjoy." Colleen, gardening volunteer.
