Dulwich Park Friends’ application to the Mayor’s Greener City Fund proved successful! This means that fifteen new trees will be planted in the park during National Tree Week (23 November – 1 December) – five each alongside the College Gate entrance road, in the orchard and in the Japanese garden by the rivulet.
£5,760 was awarded on a matched funding basis that included £1,050 from the Friends, as well as value in kind from volunteers organised by idverde’s Development Officer Andy Robinson through corporate initiatives (via Hands on London) and school programmes.
The Friends’ Chair Emily Montague has set up a Dulwich Park Tree Trail, using the Ticl App. This can be found here and will grow over time: https://ticl.me/Dulwich/headlines/13740/view
