Greening for Newham’s Next Generation
SUGi is undertaking a major urban greening partnership with the forward-thinking London Borough of Newham. Together, we’ll be planting SUGi Pocket Forests in 15 local schools, transforming a highly urbanized environment with a biodiverse network of native species havens. Thanks to a grant from the Council, Nature will begin to bloom across the community and in the imaginations of the schoolchildren, who will not only help plant the forests, but act as citizen scientists and stewards as they grow and flourish together. Stay tuned for more updates on this Nature Solution in action.
We’re thrilled to be working with SUGi on delivering new biodiverse and much needed green spaces for residents of all ages across Newham. The pilot seeks to make a significant step towards increasing the long-term climate resilience of the borough alongside the immediate learning, community, and overall health benefits of the planting process.
