lovely gardener st john stephen has arranged a day of poetry, bluegrass, acoustic guitar and spoken word this sunday at the ‘olden garden‘, in whistler street, islington. we are definitely going to pop along, so i do hope that the weather stays warm and sunny !
apparently the olden garden is a hidden gem of london – one of the many secret green spaces that i love about london. i also noticed in new york that any available space became a community garden or an allotment – london has lots of community allotments along the railway tracks or busy highways, but i hear that there are long waiting lists to apply for them. one of my friends has an allotment in south end green and each year she has to make sure that its maintained or else she can be evicted.
