The Vauxhall One greening team has been busy creating new pocket gardens on previously unloved patches of land in central Vauxhall.

The team has already transformed two plots this spring, with new green spaces outside MI6 on Albert Embankment, and at the entrance to Vauxhall City Farm on Tyers Street.

Monica Tyler, CEO of Vauxhall City Farm, commented:

“The new green beds outside the farm are a welcome sight, its greatly enhanced our entrance to the farm and our visitor experience.  Since the farm reopened last week, we’ve received so many compliments from our neighbours and visitors, who are so pleased with the new look, it gives a great entrance into our little oasis.
Thank you so much Vauxhall One!”

The gardens feature plants that were selected to improve local biodiversity, such as heathers, spiraea and euphorbia.

These greening projects are part of Vauxhall One’s commitment to improve the public realm and make Vauxhall a better place to live, work and visit. In addition to greening, the team also tackles graffiti, creates murals and public art, and produces events throughout the year. Read more in the Vauxhall One round-up of 2020 projects.
