London Fields residents call on donations to build garden
Residents in London Fields are requesting donations from the community to build a green space on their estate.
Occupants of Morland Estate, in Richmond Road, are leading a grassroots crowdfunding campaign, with help from charity Trees for Cities, to transform the neglected area at the centre of their estate into a garden.
The project needs a cash boost of £10,000 to become a reality.
Money will go towards building and maintaining plant beds, a 10-tree community orchard and a natural play area aimed at engaging children nature.
Residents hope that the garden will help bring together tenants from diverse backgrounds and those who are isolated and elderly.
