Greening and Rewilding
Greening and Rewilding urban spaces has benefits for the community and for biodiversity. In Camden we have tree cover of 22.9% but what if we could grow this even further? What if we could fill our community spaces, schools, gardens both home and office with plants? Plants sequester CO2 so contribute to tackling the climate emergency, they also support wildlife and enrich the biodiversity in Camden. Spending time in nature can reduce stress too.

Wildflower Seeds Giveaways
For the last two years in spring time Think & Do has given away wildflower seeds to be planted in gardens or pots across Camden. We hope to continue wildflower giveaways, perhaps in person in 2022. Sign up to our Newsletter here for more information on this.
