Lever Street Community Garden is a small and lively garden with 17 raised wooden beds, each one metre square, to enable local families and individuals to learn about and enjoy growing vegetables, fruit and flowers. These are surrounded by fruit trees, shrubs and flowers, two hot composters, a water supply, ample seating and a communal toolbox. The garden was launched in 2013 as a joint project between the local community and Islington Council, and opens monthly to visitors. It was judged to be Islington’s Best Community Park in 2019.
