Jolimont Primary Forest
A green lung for the ‘pink city’
Jolimont Primary Forest will be planted in the heart of Toulouse, the fourth largest city in France and nicknamed "the pink city". With a surface of 400 Sq m, this urban forest will be located in front of the entrance to the primary school. It will be an important oasis, bringing clean air and supporting biodiversity, along with physical and mental wellbeing, in this increasingly built-up municipality.
The project involves several local volunteer and community groups, working together with the school. The students will be involved in all stages of the project, from planting the trees according to the Miyawaki method, to watching and tracking their growth year after year.
SUGi looks forward to giving this land back to nature, making a contribution to the overall aim of re-greening this ‘pink city’ and encouraging the city community to reconnect both physically and spiritually with nature.
