Event Description

The Hornsey Library Zen Garden - Can you help?

One of the hidden gems of Crouch End is the Zen Garden that nestles in the middle of Hornsey Library on Haringey Park.

The library was opened in 1965 and this courtyard garden was created as an ornamental centre piece with the potential for community and educational use.

Over the years it has been seldom used and has become rather neglected. Recently the Library Service tackled the massive job of clearing out the pond, thus revealing the shape of the original structure.

The Garden has the potential to be a place of relaxation and reflection, for story telling sessions for children, for low impact exercise and yoga classes, poetry readings and lots of other activities.

Then there is the gardening: we will need volunteers who fancy the creative opportunity (and exercise!) of getting the garden back into shape and maintaining it.

I have been visiting the Garden to meet Tony Wilson, the senior librarian at Hornsey, and both of us would like to set up a group to bring the space back into use and run it for the benefit of library users and the wider community.

We will be holding an informal meeting to show the garden to those interested in contributing time to the project and discussing how best to get this started.

We will meet in the library at 6:00 pm on Thursday 15th August

If you would like to talk about this in advance, give me a call on 020 8292 5509 or email david.winskill@haringeylibdems.org. Please drop me a line so I can know what sort of numbers to expect.
