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