On October 17th, we will be participating in the launch of an urban greening project across Croydon, as part of Timberland’s #natureneedsheroes campaign. We have already created a garden at the BRIT School, where Loyle Carner was a student, and will be doing an even bigger transformation at the neglected square outside Thornton Heath train station.
The launch event this week is a chance to continue the community consultation, raise awareness and engage local people to inform designs that will be implemented in March 2020.
The space is currently a barren expanse of concrete, and we will be installing raised beds, planters and seating areas that also integrate with plans for regular market traders. The goal is to make the space more beautiful and welcoming, clean the air next to this busy road, provide habitat for pollinators and allow people to connect with nature in this hard, urban environment.
