Putting the Green back into Wood Green

About the Wood Green Library Garden Community Project

Future Wood Green, Wood Green’s Business Improvement District (BID), has been awarded funding through the Mayor of London’s Greener City Fund Community Grant Scheme to transform the front of the Library area on the High Road. Working with Haringey Council, the BID submitted an application for funding to create a new community garden outside Wood Green Library.

The BID partnered with local social enterprise GrowN22 C.I.C. to create this new green space. We are keen for as many people of all ages and abilities to be involved in this project. 

The new Library Garden project started on the 14th March 2020. Local residents and volunteers joined the BID and GrowN22 to begin the first phase of planting. A range of colourful Alpines, Hebes' and flowers were planted and further community workshops will take place once the UK wide Lockdown is over.

If would like to get involved with the new Library Garden please get in contact and follow us on Twitter for the latest updates.

The Gardens

“Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.” – Sherry Anderson

We will be updating this page to contain as much information as possible about the new Library Garden... 

We have conducted two community workshops focusing on planting a lovely range of pollinating plants. The plants are in the process of bedding into their new home and will establish themselves over the coming weeks and months.

The Wildflowers were sown with seeds from Meadow in my Garden and the plants for the Library Garden have been supplied by Crews Hill Whole Sellers, Premier Plants UK and Sunshine Garden Centre
