Helping improve the green environment and creating a community hub

Welcome to the Friends of Barnsbury Square Gardens website

Enjoy this lovely green space over the summer with family, friends, or neighbours!  Watch the sunlight streaming through the trees, walk around, listen to the birds, sit and read, study, look at the plants, or browse through our free community book swap bookcase on the hut – the choice is yours.  You may find Marianne, our artist in residence, in the square sketching –

You can help us work on the green environment if you’d like to do that – FOBSG volunteers are often around in the square, regularly on Saturday mornings and often on Friday mornings too.  Feel free to come over chat to them, then they can answer any questions you might have  You can also follow us on instagram at:  barnsburysquare_official and we have a GoFundMe page if you’d like to make a donation.  Barnsbury Square Gardens is a Site of Interest for Nature Conservation and there are all kinds of ways you can support wildlife, planting in the space, and your local community by helping out in it.  We’re also a 2022-23 Green Flag Community Award winner  – an award scheme run by the charity Keep Britain Tidy.
