Father Nature on the Ground
Making outdoor spaces for playing, learning and living.
Our aim is to connect inner city folk, young and old, with the potential of Lambeth and South London's growing spaces, with nature, with one another. Father Nature is a landscape gardening and horticultural enterprise with a commitment to community growing projects. In the past year Benisi and Impact Hub Scaling have been helping us put mission and good business practice together to create a sustainable future with real impact.
Our current sustainable community growing projects include building outdoor classrooms for urban schools, street-side planters for community growing, gardening sessions at communal playgrounds, planting parties wherever we're needed, as well as an Urban Orchard cider project, The Big Park Sleepover, and a new rooftop garden at Great Ormond Street Hospital to provide fresh food for the staff and patients.
All of our projects involve close collaboration with communities to help people transform their neighbourhood by sharing our design and gardening know-how. Whether it’s greening your street with flowers and trees, growing fruit and veg locally, teaching children and adults about healthy eating and sustainability, or simply having fun outdoors, it’s all about growing together.
Father Nature is a winner of the Lambeth Green Business Award, Lemos & Crane 'Growing Localities' Award, Lloyds Scale Up and Impact Hub Scaling.
