Holy Trinity Brompton - Natura Nostra Forest
Paving a green path for biodiversity in Central London.
Holy Trinity Brompton offers a truly unique opportunity to bring native trees into an iconic area of London. The avenue leading up to the church allows for the creation of a wild pathway: on one side a vibrant area of 400 Sq m native woodland while on the other, a native woodland meadow of 200 Sq m.
This project presents a remarkable chance to provide a valuable green space in the heart of the city, enhancing the area's aesthetic appeal. This will invite residents and visitors alike to reconnect with the beauty and serenity of the forest.
Forest Maker James Godfrey-Faussett
“We’re thrilled to be working with SUGi to plant a Pocket Forest along the driveway at HTB Brompton Road. This is a fantastic way to introduce biodiversity into the centre of London and connect our community with creation each time they visit our church. We hope that this inspires our visitors to spend more time enjoying the natural world and encourages them to think about sustainability more in their day-to-day lives.”
— Archie Coates, Vicar, Holy Trinity Brompton
Native species selection:
For this project we are planting 2,500 trees, using 72 native species of Tree, Shrubs and Wildflowers.
