FoTHCP have a strong track record of running practical landscaping and planting projects and conservation and forest school consultancy for a range of clients in Tower Hamlets and elsewhere.

Our unique approach encompasses:

  • Carefully planned, cost effective and site specific plantings – a ‘Chelsea’ look for the cost of a boring shrub bed
  • High wildlife value plantings using interesting species – chosen by a botanist for year round interest and colour
  • Facilitative approach – working with the client’s own management staff, grounds maintenance operatives and with residents
  • Social outcomes – we work in partnership with horticultural well-being project Grounded Ecotherapy
  • Added value for not-for-profits – we can bring in teams of corporate volunteers
  • Aftercare training for grounds maintenance staff and/or residents – promotes initiative, independence and sustainability
  • Optional aftercare of projects for an agreed period
  • Advice and guidance to newly formed Forest Schools to help establish their site and activities
  • Capacity building of Friends and Residents Groups

  • Creating specialist wildlife habitats – kingfisher nesting bank and new chalk grassland for Tower Hamlets Council
