Helping improve the green environment and creating a community hub

About The Friends of Barnsbury Square Gardens

The Friends of Barnsbury Square Gardens are a team of volunteers made up of local residents and regular visitors who work alongside Islington Council teams to improve and maintain the green environment of the square, and create a community hub where people of all ages feel welcome.  More volunteers are always needed!

The Friends of Barnsbury Square Gardens also apply for grants and funding to improve the square’s green environment or facilities and have successfully applied for grants to renovate the hut kitchen so that we can hold community events, and for the costs of substantial new planting/soil etc.  We host school visits, one-off events like seasonal parties for the local community, artist-in-residence visits,  and we get Barnsbury Square Gardens included in London-wide events.
