Green Routes

Green Routes is a community horticultural centre and market garden located in Finsbury Park. It is a flagship project for Metropolitan, offering a range of activities and opportunities for both local people and those from the wider London area.

Activities include:

  • growing and selling plants, herbs and vegetables
  • volunteering and supporting people to get back into work
  • training in grounds maintenance
  • tailored horticultural training for individuals and community groups

The Green Routes site is located just inside Finsbury Park, by the Manor House entrance (turn right when you enter the park and you’ll find us right there). It is a little green oasis in a very busy part of London, where Green Lanes (A105) and Seven Sisters Road (A503) meet.

We also train volunteers to get experience with our grounds maintenance contractor, Pinnacle, giving them the opportunity to learn new skills and become employable in the future.
