On Saturday 14th June we are once again proud to be taking part in this well-established annual event. Over the past seven years the Friends of Carnegie Library have renovated the formerly derelict enclosed garden at the rear of the library, in co-operation with Lambeth Council and with funding from the Big Lottery Fund under the BBC Breathing Places scheme and the Metropolitan Public Gardens Association.
We'll be open 10am - 5pm, with refreshments, display on the history & development of the garden, self-guide tour notes and occasional guided tours. All are welcome.
Entry to the Carnegie Reading & Wildlife Garden is free, but we will also have a limited number of tickets + guide books for the overall London-wide Open Garden Squares Weekend , which allows entry to hundreds of venues in greater London. Tickets are £10 in advance, £12 on the day, £6 for National Trust members. Children 12 and under free.
Other venues taking part in the local area include Brockwell Park Community Greenhouses, South London Botanical Institute, Centre for Wildlife Gardening in Peckham, Windrush Square in Brixton and Dulwich Upper Wood and three more in Walworth SE17
