Growing Green

Biodiversity - Community - Clean Air

A London-based grassroots organisation taking action

Our mission

Health is breathing clean air and being surrounded by nature. Wilding is a powerful way to restore and heal our planet.  Growing Green is dedicated to taking action in our community.  We transform urban areas and school grounds by planting trees and hedges, building ponds, and growing food & flowers. We change featureless grass areas into wildflower meadows rich in wildlife, not only increasing biodiversity but also connecting communities to nature.

Many exciting biodiversity projects are underway in state schools across Camden. We rely on donations, and your generosity will help make a difference.

Hedgehog Highways 


FREE Hedgehog Highway Hole Cutting Service!
Give urban hedgehogs a helping hand ... and access to your garden. Let us do the dirty work and cut a hole in your fence - for FREE! 

We have partnered up with Heath Hands to work on a hedgehog corridor connecting Hampstead Heath where we have a robust hedgehog population, with Waterlow Park & Highgate Cemetery via the Holly Lodge Estate. 
Hedgehogs used to be a part of every garden but they have completely disappeared. Will you help us saving our urban hedgehogs?

We are hiring!

We want to grow our team of volunteers and are looking for project managers. Join our wonderful team and do something positive!
