On the 17th January 2022 we'd raised £200 with 6 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

At the heart of Islington Forest for Change in an unloved green space which we are regenerating into a thriving community space. A place for children to play, people to unwind and wildlife to thrive

Outdoor learning

Outdoor classrooms will be created, giving children and local schools space to escape, play and learn about the natural world and our climate. Forest schools are an opportunity to explore continue curriculum learning in new ways.

Wildlife

It is a space for wildlife to thrive in natural habitats. We will build a pond to attract frogs and other pond life. Eight new bird boxes will be installed to attract swifts, starlings, great tit, blue tits.

Seven layers of woodland

We will reinstate the seven natural layers found in a woodland through planting and redesigning the space. This will increase bio-diversity and make it an interesting place to relax and unwind.

Residents and volunteers

Local residents can get involved in tree and hedge planting, bulb planting, hedge laying, caring for trees, building ponds and nurturing the woodland space. There will be regular volunteer days throughout the year.
