Making Islington Greener One Tree At A Time

On Wednesday 2nd March, the Angel Central team hosted a volunteering day at Hugh Myddleton Primary School to plant the remaining 52 trees from our Community Forest within the school’s nursery playground.

The Angel Central Community Forest was created from trees donated by Project Everyone, part of Somerset House’s Forest for Change initiative and part of wider tree planting and regeneration in the Islington area – the result of sponsorship by Angel Central and the partnership between the centre, Islington Clean Air Parents and Islington Council.

Every element of the Sustainable Forest has either been reused within Angel Central or donated to the local community. This included over 200 trees and plants, and even 4 tonnes of bark, which has created a new path at King Square Gardens.
