The Merton Climate Action Group has launched their ‘Merton Garden Streets’ initiative to transform the local area into a greener place to live.
This is not only to encourage the community to be closer to nature and beautify their homes but to improve the air you breathe and the wildlife you see.
They have two incredible days planned where you can join your local residents and businesses for ‘community planting’. All Merton residents are invited to get involved with front garden planting, window boxes, hanging baskets, ‘greening-up’ bin/bike sheds and street planting (e.g., tree pits).
19th June and 17th July
Don’t have experience?
No problem! The community planting days are open to everyone to get involved in. Don’t forget, there are prizes to be won. So, bring your family down, get stuck in and pot it like it’s hot. We’re rooting for you.
