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 growing projects.
Our aim is to connect inner city folk, young and old, with the potential of
London’s growing spaces, with nature, with each other.



Father Nature is a Social Enterprise working to provide community based sustainable

urban gardening projects and events around Lambeth and beyond.

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 also build and maintain planters, raised beds, container gardens and pocket parks around the borough,
organise Planting Parties and support an ever widening community of growing hubs.

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!
