National Gardening Week
We've been celebrating the positive impact plants, gardens and green spaces have on mental and physical wellbeing.
We're inspired by resident-led gardening and grow-your-own projects across our estates, and work with resident gardening groups to provide space and funding where we can. We recently funded raised vegetable beds for the Peabody Avenue and Close Gardening Club, who have created a series of beautiful gardens in Pimlico.
This volunteer Gardening Club was started several years ago by local residents in the Peabody Avenue and Close estates.
They are transforming the green spaces into areas that are inviting to the community and which encourage people to garden and live more sustainable lives by connecting with nature.
As well as tropical and colourful planting, the fruiting trees, flowers and bug hotel encourage wildlife and produce fruit and vegetables for the community.
