Welcome to the Friends of Duncan Terrace and Colebrooke Row Gardens Online!
Our Friends group is a loose coalition of volunteers – local residents who live in the surrounding streets of the Gardens plus others from elsewhere in St Peter’s Ward – Quick St, Elia St, City Road, but also residents from further afield who work in the Borough or who use or pass through the Gardens on a regular basis. This is in addition to support and volunteering from our partner organisations.
The Group works closely with the Islington Parks Services and is supported by other partners such as Hugh Grover Estate Agents, City University and the St Peter’s ward councillors to ensure the upkeep of the Gardens. We are also kindly supported by the Metropolitan Public Gardens Association through initiatives like Bulbs for London sponsored by Taylors Bulbs.
As well as improving the quality of life of local people, a key objective is to support the conservation and horticultural development of the Gardens in a sustainable way, so that we can ensure we have a special place for people and the Community to enjoy and a vital habitat for wildlife and plants, both now and in the future.
You can find our Community Garden Days listed under Gardening Events and we look forward to seeing you on any of those days. The Garden Blog page will keep you posted on some of the planting that has taken place and if you would like to be kept up-to-date with what else is going on, just hit the Contact page and we will add you to our database.
