Unkempt Finsbury Park garden transformed into thriving allotment
PUBLISHED: 08:06 28 July 2013
An unkempt old garden outside a church has been turned into much-needed allotments thanks to a community project.
The overgrown green in front of St Saviour’s Church, in Hanley Road, Finsbury Park, can now be used for growing veg and plants after green-fingered volunteers spent a hot day digging last month.
Partners for Improvement in Islington, who manage and maintain Islington Councils’ street properties, stumped up £3,500 for the scheme.
Canon David Bird, vicar of Tollington Parish which includes St. Saviour’s church, said: “I am delighted that so many people are responding positively to this wonderful project.”
