We have partnered with CREW energy and Biotecture to start a fantastic initiative – securing government grant money and installing green walls in primary schools which are deprived of green space. Our initial trial went swimmingly well – installing two living walls in Wandsworth. Over 100 children at Smallwood Primary school helped to plant the lower sections of the walls. The plants were selected to be interactive and educational – strawberries, rosemary, thyme and heaps of pollinator plants make for a sensory and wildlife-friendly space.
We are thrilled with the success and are in the process of securing more funding to continue the programme and green the grey school grounds of inner city London!
Below is a news article written up in the Garden Design Journal about the initiative.
