Harvard Hill Park

In November 2018 Abundance ran a tree planting session in this small local park which adjoins the A4 below the elevated section near the Chiswick roundabout. Each child from the local schools planted a sapling of the new shelter belt, provided by the Woodland Trust which included rowans, hawthorns, oak, yew, blackthorn, hollies, goat willow.

Two redwoods were also planted, donated by Ron from Redwood World.

Following on from this, local residents set up a Friends of Harvard Hill which successfully continues the good work.

Ron from Redwood World donated two giant redwoods (currently not giant!) and these were planted by local resident Carolin Garside who was celebrating an important birthday, and John Repsch, a Mortlake tree fanatic. 

As a direct result of the improvement the local residents decided to set up a Friends of Harvard Hill Park group, whose inaugural meeting was held in April 2019. This active group have since planted further shelter belts and trees.
