from fly-tipping to flower picking

RamseyFlowersN1 is a local guerrilla gardening group supported by Greenspace, Islington’s parks team. 

It was created on February 2017 to tackle fly-tipping. Our motto is ‘from fly-tipping to flower picking’.

We rely on donations from local business and volunteers in around Ramsey Walk, N1. We currently up-lifted and maintain three gardens where before fly-tipping and ASB occurred.

  • Rosebowl alleyway, in parternship with Islington Council
  • 24-27  Ramsey Walk in partnership with Southern Housing
  • St Pauls Woodlands with support  from Greenspaces

We aim to lift areas and create tailored and sustainable maintenance models for local residents to run within 12 months.  How? We teach residents about gardening, organise admin behind the scenes, health & safety and insurance and provide basic tools, knowlwedge and resources to maintain the garden.

Our current approach to any project revolves around:

  • make it simple
  • have fun
  • stay mobile
  • keep it real

The begining



My name is Paola, I am a local resident of Ramsey Walk whom started this initiative by lifting -up the neglected alleyway between Rosebowl and 27 Ramsey Walk.

Only four months after its start the project expanded down the road where we transformed another fly-tipping corner in front of 24 Ramsey Walk.

During the initial planting of the Rosebowl’s alleyway more than 20 passerby  from both sides of Essex Rd expressed their delight and offered help.

This couldn’t been possible without the trust and support from Greenspace, Islignton Council and Southern Housing whom share responsibility for this area.

Since the planting of the first gardens we noticed a decrease in ASB such as aggressive cycling through the area with zero fly tipping.
