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
