Sunnyside Community Gardens is a long-established open-access community garden in Archway, North Islington. It is maintained and developed by a diverse group of volunteers living in the adjacent council estates and streets supported by part-time community gardeners. The garden’s one-acre site offers a number of different habitats including an enclosed family garden, wildflower meadow, wildlife pond, a wooded nature reserve and a plant nursery. We also maintain a historically important formal garden in the adjacent Elthorne Park.
We are now looking for a friendly and experienced community gardener to help deliver our three year "Community Hub" project funded by the National Lottery's "Community Fund". You will be responsible for developing and leading two new gardening-based projects and will also have lead responsibility for organising and managing use of Sunnyside’s plant nursery.
