Volunteers from FORA cleared away litter and planted wildflowers in a flowerbed outside Tesco Leytonstone today (Sat 30th Jan). The idea is part of FORA’s campaign to improve the area as a place to live and work. Planting wildflowers increases the bio-diversity of the area and is particularly helpful in increasing numbers of bees and butterflies. More plants also help to improve air quality, a major issue in our area as it is bisected by the A12 link road.
Wildflower seeds were provided as part of the Grow Wild Campaign led by the Royal Horticultural Society. We are also grateful to Tesco who support us in our efforts to tidy up and improve the area.
We hope you enjoy the wildflowers as they appear through the spring and summer. If you would like to find out more about our events and activities, see our events page or our current campaigns page or get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org or add a comment below.
