Harlesden Town Garden

Get Involved

There are lots of ways to get involved in Harlesden Town Garden and help contribute to this diverse and vibrant community.

Volunteer at our Green Club!

Green Club is held every Saturday from 10 am to 12 pm year-round and has activities suitable for ages and abilities. No experience is required!

Each week we get stuck in making Harlesden Town Garden an even better environment—while learning how to grow fruit and vegetables under the guidance of our gardening experts from the Friends of Harlesden Town Garden group.

Our Green Club activities are suitable for adults and children alike. All we ask for is bucketloads of enthusiasm! Safety and gardening equipment is provided but remember to bring along something warm and waterproof in case the weather turns. If you have your own gloves, feel free the bring them along too.

We also run trips for volunteers to places such as the amazing Kew Gardens and have occasional visiting lecturers to talk about topics like Permaculture and Biodiversity.

HTG Converted container clubhouse

Hire our Hub House

Winner of UCL Provost's Public Engagement Award 2020, the Friends of Harlesden Town Garden (FHTG) has built a new hub for the whole community.

We have created an area that provides a multipurpose, visually attractive, environmentally friendly and secure base for the ever-growing programme of activities in the garden.

FHTG successfully applied for Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (NCIL) funding to complete the final part of the town garden's infrastructure project in partnership with Brent Council and local Architects Storpweber, who have offered their skills and imagination to collaborate, consult and design our much-needed new home.

We hope our new Hub House will bring together our local residents and gardeners in all

The Hub House is available for private, corporate and community events. Each request will be carefully reviewed by our FHTG Committee.
