Our work with this small environmental charity in Hackney has been developing over the past 2 – 3 years – working closely with the CEO there. There are big smiles all round at the moment as we have helped secure £90,000 in grants over the last three months – from trusts and one corporate donor. We really want to do our bit to support their work with young children through Forest Schools – and with local residents working to develop 18 Community Gardens out of derelict or neglected spaces. Many local people are themselves developing the skills needed to manage the gardens and to make them thrive through planting and growing trees, fruits and vegetables – making these spaces beautiful and useful for the community.
