Making outdoor spaces for playing, learning, living.

Based in the heart of Lambeth, Father Nature is a landscape gardening and horticultural organisation
specialising in high quality private garden design alongside
community based sustainable urban gardening projects and events around Lambeth and beyond.
Our aim is to connect inner city folk, young and old, with the potential of
London’s growing spaces, with nature, with each other.

 

We provide high quality Garden Design consultancy to private clients – from planters for
small patios, courtyards and roof terraces to full-scale garden landscaping.

Our Community Projects in Lambeth include work with TRAs and Lambeth Council on projects such as
Our Streets‘ where we build and maintain planters, raised beds, container gardens and pocket parks and more.

We organise Planting Parties and support an ever widening community of growing hubs.

We design and build Outdoor Classrooms for schools providing inner city children with
access to outdoor play and learning opportunities about nature, healthy eating and sustainability.

We run Playground Growing schemes for families and work with the NHS GP Food Co-op
to promote health through growing-your-own fruit and veg.

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.

Our many other partners include Incredible Edible Lambeth, Lambeth Council,

Lambeth TRA Network, LEAP, London Connected Learning Centre (London CLC), Natural Thinkers

and Sowing the Seeds, part of the London Sustainable Development Commission.

We love Lambeth! If you’ve got an idea for more community growing, let us know!
