Local Guerrilla Gardeners are claiming back this woodland in order to create a tranquil retreat for residents of all ages. We believe access to woodland is a basic human right.

It is an interesting exercise to try and imagine a community without green spaces. Imagine London without Hyde Park, or New York without Central Park. As long ago as 1880 the famous American park designer,Frederick Law Olmsted described the value of parks and the many benefits that access to green spaces provides such as improved human health— physical and mental well-being, space for reflection, connection and social capital, in addition to the provision of ecological services and biodiversity conservation.

It is no different today.
