Head off to the Garden Museum in Lambeth for inspiration on how to do your bit to make London greener, brighter and more biodiverse. The London’s Green Corners display, newly installed there, tells stories of gardeners who’ve won prizes in these all-year round awards for their roof terraces, balconies, alleyways, mews, sacred spaces, pavement side plots and all manner of other green spaces which bring colour to the urban landscape.
The monthly winners in these awards, which are organised by The Conservation Foundation, will go forward to the grand final next spring when an expert judging panel will choose London’s most gorgeous, inspirational, delicious and witty green corners.
And while you’re at the Garden Museum, see Going Dutch, an exhibition of the work of Henk Gerritsen and Piet Oudolf and Edwina’s Sassoon’s exhibition of photographs of London allotments.
With autumn upon us and winter in the offing, London needs its green fingered residents to brighten the darkening days. To enter your own green corner or to nominate one that brightens your day and lifts your spirits go to www.conservationfoundation.co.uk
