In 2021, we started our newest venture – green projects. Introducing plants and greenery to our community spaces will help mitigate the effects of air pollution and give local people and pupils more access to nature. Green installations, like green walls and plants will also develop over time to provide an uninterrupted covering of green, attracting bees, butterflies and insects.
Back in 2020, we received funding from the Wandsworth Local Fund for our Green Walls project.
Since then, we have installed green walls at four schools across Wandsworth and Merton, including Smallwood School, Fircroft Primary School and Hillbrook School in Tooting - which you can see are developing nicely.
If you would like a green wall in your school, civic centre or business, get in touch!
“I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with our Green Wall! The children are really excited about it and staff and parents have been highly complimentary, saying how much it lifts the playground environment. I would also like to add that the team were a delight to have here and absolutely brilliant with the kids.”

CREW has recently started planting bushes in the local area. Our first project at St John Fisher School in Morden will help cut down on pollution from the busy road the school sits on. If you fancy volunteering to plant, please drop us an email.
