Greener City Fund Community Grants
Apply for a grant
Do you want to create or improve a green space in your neighbourhood, and improve Londoners’ access to nature? Or do you want to green your school playground to protect students from air pollution? We’re looking for projects across the capital that will make the city greener and give Londoners the chance to get involved.
Applications close at 5pm on Monday 1 October 2018. Projects should take place between January 2019 and January 2020.
How do I apply?
1. Before applying, please read the Grants Guide carefully and make sure your project addresses the aims of the fund.
We will be holding an applicant workshop on Thursday 6 September, from 4pm to 6pm. This is optional, but may help to inform your application. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest in attending.

Coinciding with National Park City Week
- Walk the Brockley Three Peaks Trail. Pick up a map from the garden and a discount voucher for food and drinks on the day at participating ‘pit-stops’ along the way. All are fantastic local venues (including: Chandos Pub; Le Querce Italian; Mama Dough; Fred’s Cafe; Cafe Crofton Park; Jones of Brockley Deli – if you fancy a picnic instead; and more). The 5 mile circular walk will take you up to One Tree Hill, Blythe Hill Fields and Hilly Fields and the valley of the River Ravensbourne through Ladywell Fields.
- Sensory Flavour Tour workshop with Flavour Sense.com. This is an amazing workshop exploring how our senses inform and influence our perception of food and flavour. Please book via eventbrite, as we need to get an idea of numbers attending this one.
- A couple of kids workshops too – Art In Nature and Storytelling
LOCATION AND GETTING HERE
The garden runs parallel to platform one of Crofton Park Railway Station (Thameslink Sevenoaks line from Blackfriars) or is a short distance away from Honor Oak Park or Brockley stations on the London Overground Line. It is also on a direct route from Holborn / The Strand / Waterloo on 171 / 172 bus.
The garden entrance is on Marnock Road, SE4 1AZ, Brockley, London.
Unfortunately, there was a small error on the July-August Nature’s Gym programme. Our Saturday session will be on Saturday 28th July and not Saturday 21st July as some of your programmes will say. Apologies for the error and we hope to see you there.
