£67K to plant 300 trees in Streatham

The Street Trees Coalition has managed to get $67,500 of funding from the Mayors Street Tree Initiative to plant 300 trees in Streatham. Members of the public have nominated over 60 streets for tree planting – across the whole of Streatham.

However, in order to secure these funds they need to raise 50% matching funding (The total cost of the trees is $135,000 which includes three years of pruning, watering, feeding and insurance to replace any vandalised trees).

Interested in growing food in Streatham?

 

Do you have a residents group on your road or estate that would be interested in growing edible plants or trees?

Streatham Action’s Active Streatham Project has funding from The Mayor’s Outer London Fund to provide planters, compost and plants. Master Gardeners and Streatham Common Community Garden will offer training on plant care, harvesting etc. 

This is available to community groups in Streatham who agree to care for and maintain the plants and planters.
