SUGi Pocket Forests: 12
SUGi uses Nature-based Solutions to help cities build biodiversity, climate resilience and community wellbeing.
We create native pocket forests in urban landscapes as targeted interventions that address biodiversity loss, air pollution, heat island effect, flooding, community wellbeing, and environmental injustice.
As extreme weather becomes more frequent, the overabundance of concrete and other impermeable surfaces worsen the impact of heavy rainfall and heatwaves.
Our pocket forests address multiple urban challenges, including biodiversity loss, air pollution, heat island effect, flooding, community wellbeing, and aesthetics.
In London, with the help of local councils, communities, and institutions, we’ve planted 12 Pocket Forests, including the UK and Europe's largest Miyawaki Forest in Barking and Dagenham. Over 20 pocket forests will be planted in London in the Fall, including the 15 just announced in the Borough of Newham.
SUGi Pocket Forests are built by our expert-Forest Makers using the proven Miyawaki Method.
