At Castlehaven we have 4 acres of green space just off Camden high street and would love to transform it into a vibrant and loved park space that is rich in biodiversity, that provides opportunities for the community to learn about gardening, food growing and conservation issues.
We run community gardening sessions every Wednesday from 10.30am - 2.30pm, where we focus on gardening and maintenance and encouraging wildlife in and around Castlehaven.
We are also in the process of developing a new Horticultural Hub, a facility for horticultural education, including a glasshouse, green activities & community volunteering.
So far we have:

Castlehaven is a community association that has been working with the most disadvantaged sectors of the community for the last 28 years (e.g. young unemployed, isolated elderly, lone parents etc).
Castlehaven’s mission is to ensure that everybody feels heard, valued & has the opportunity to try &/or learn something new in a positive, supportive environment. We do this by:
- Providing classes, groups and activities for all sections of the community.
- Representing local opinion at local, borough-wide and national forums.
- Exploring and developing innovative and effective ways of promoting social inclusion.
- Developing local solutions to local problems and promoting standards of good practice.
