About us

Friends of City Gardens is a community group based in the City of London. We support the City’s gardens team and our aims are to enhance biodiversity; improve access to green spaces and create exciting new gardens in the City.

We do this by organising a range of activities for all age groups in City gardens , including curriculum-based sessions for primary school children, family fun and games in holiday time; cultural and art-based events; gentle pottering for older residents; biodiversity surveys and biodiversity action sessions.

We engage with the business community and organise specialist workshops on enhancing green roofs for biodiversity. We also organise corporate volunteer days.

City in Bloom is an annual competition we run on behalf of the City which culminates in an Award Ceremony that is a celebration for all City communities  - businesses, residents, institutions, churches, schools and community groups.

Take a look at our project list for more information.

We have nearly 200 volunteers, City workers, residents and visitors to the City that live outside the Square Mile, who love our green spaces and contribute over 4,000 volunteer hours a year.

Above all we like having fun in gardens ….
