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, growing food & flowers, we change featureless grass areas into wildflower meadows rich in wildlife.

Coffee, Cakes & Clothes Fundraiser

Our Secondhand Clothes Sale in November was a huge success!
Over 100 people came along to shop fabulous clothes that were donated to us by friends of Growing Green. 

We raised a staggering £2755 that will go towards our school projects. We are super proud and so grateful for living in such a fantastic and supportive community.

A big THANK YOU to everyone who donated clothes and bought clothes, baked cakes and ate cakes and made this a wonderful community event.
Missed the event? The Summer Edition of our Secondhand Clothes Sale is on Sunday, 28th April. Save the date!

Wilding Schools

Making schools across London go wild! 
We are volunteers and help schools finding the best options for their spaces, assist with fundraising, project management and planting.  Together, we create native hedges, wildflower meadows, orchards, hedgehog habitats, bird sanctuaries, ...

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

We work with different groups for the full 'sustainability package' - e.g. PUNL for solar panels. Get in touch for more info.

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?
