Welcome to Green Croydon, a one stop location for a range of environmental and community linked activities in the borough. That might be an event, a group an organisation or an idea. We actively encourage residents to get involved in making Croydon a great place because it is up to all of us to do so.
Over the years we have produced a monthly newsletter, an annual environmental fair and bi-annual Give and Take events. Our interest in reuse has led to a major project with reuse workshops. Making use of pallets, donated wood, car innertubes, furniture and fabrics. Even oyster mushroom growing on waste coffee grounds. This interest in food growing led to a microgreens project, support for community food growing and annual fruit pressing harvest days.
Finally, to add to the rich tapestry of Croydon life. Journalistic contributions to the Croydon Citizen, arts and crafts fair and a monthly radio show on Croydon Radio. But, for a variety of reasons so many of these projects have had to fall by the wayside and be put to one side until circumstances change or improve. So let us know if you are interested in trying to bring any of them back.
Green Croydon supports the establishment and sustainability of community gardens and pop up projects such as the Croydon Saffron Farm. Also lending support to the long-term sustainability of our wonderful parks and open spaces and community gardens and their respective friends groups.
Keep an eye on this website as we look to kickstart our environmental projects. This could be your starting point to get involved with Croydon’s environmental scene.
