Making outdoor spaces for playing, learning, living.
Our aim is to connect inner city folk, young and old, with the potential of
London’s growing spaces, with nature, with each other.
Based in the heart of Lambeth, Father Nature is a landscape gardening and horticultural organisation
specialising in community growing. Read about our community work in The Huffington Post.

access to outdoor play and learning opportunities about nature, healthy eating and sustainability.
We manage the Big Park Sleepover, a summer night of free family camping in London’s parks.
We’re planting trees and collecting London’s forgotten apples to make Urban Orchard cider with Hawkes.
