Grow Back Greener

Following on from the success of our lockdown wildlife garden project, we are pleased to be supported by the Mayor of London and the Grow Back Greener Fund for a third phase of nature planting at Coram’s Fields.

The space includes:

  1. An orchard of mature mulberry, apple and almond trees – abandoned for decades but now restored
  2. A greenhouse and potting shed for the Youth Centre’s young people and volunteers to use
  3. Raised beds and planters for wheelchair accessible growing
  4. A wildlife garden with ponds, invetebrate-friendly log piles, a wormery and beehives
  5. Trellis planted with edibles around the site’s iconic, listed Pavilion
  6. Bee-friendly plants such as the pictured irises, grown from root cuttings from a 25-year-old mother plant
