Welcome to Green Croydon, a one stop location for a range of environmental and community linked activities in the borough, be that an event, a group an organisation or an idea. We actively encourage residents to get involved in making Croydon a clean, pleasant, healthy and interesting place to live, work or visit.

Historically, Green Croydon has produced a newsletter, an annual environmental fair in Wandle Park, Give and Take events, a reuse project with reuse workshops, oyster mushroom growing, food growing, a microgreens project, annual fruit pressing harvest days, journalistic contributions to the Croydon Citizen a monthly arts and crafts fair and a monthly radio show on Croydon Radio, sadly no longer broadcasting. For a variety of reasons so many of these projects have had to fall by the wayside or be put to one side until circumstances change or improve. Do let us know if you can help bring any of them back.

We also support Fairtrade, Wateraid and all the boroughs environmental groups and the work of the Croydon Transition movement with their various initiatives.

Green Croydon supports the establishment and sustainability of community gardens and pop up projects such as the Croydon Saffron Farm and the long-term sustainability of our wonderful parks and open spaces and community gardens.

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.
