I joined the gardening club after lockdown. It's amazing to spend time outdoors, doing physical exercise, learning new skills and meeting new people while helping and doing some good for the community, all in one! - Berta
The opportunity to get out in the fresh air and do something positive in a green and friendly environment definitely lifts my spirits and helps me feel more connected to others in the local community. - Helen
Starting in Spring 2021, our Greener Futures Project has brought local children and families, schools and partner organisations together to transform our green spaces at Coram’s Fields. Led by a team of community volunteers, the project has helped empower our local community to take ownership of a number of previously underused green spaces across our seven acre site, creating growing hubs and developing natural habitats for our resident bees and other local wildlife.
In addition to improving access to and the quality of green areas for our community, our volunteers have benefited from having direct access to gardening, and training, accreditation and development opportunities. Volunteers have harvested their freshly grown fruit and vegetables to use at home, and for use in our social enterprise café.
Our green space and play facilities are a vital community resource, they support the mental and physical wellbeing and development of children of all ages. For many of our local children, we are considered as their back garden and families frequently visit us every day. We enable children to run around, discover nature and most importantly, play.
This Project wants to inspire our volunteers and local community to learn about gardening, growing food, the environment, wildlife, and the importance of biodiversity through educational sessions and workshops. Get involved!
