Ruth Ferguson

Greenspace Projects Manager

Ruth develops Greenspace within the city to increase biodiversity and promote connection to nature in the urban environment and is working to create a Garden-on-the-Green at Newington Green, Islington, that will support pollinators, insects and birds throughout the seasons. 

Together with local school children she has planted trees, and made woodland paths, planted a native hedge and other perennials, grasses and annuals with local volunteers.

Ruth runs a gardening club on the last Friday of every month to maintain the site where everyone is welcome to come and garden. You can sign up for the club here:

Ruth has also been developing a new outdoor classroom in Hackney, working together with corporate groups and local volunteers.
