groho is an urban greening project to make Soho and other communities in London greener, cleaner and more sustainable using living walls, roof gardens, innovative green art & design and eco architecture. We want to bring together landscape designers, architects, garden designers, artists and scientists to make London a showcase for urban ecological design and sustainability.
groho was born out of a genuine desire to bring the positive power of nature back into our cities for our health and well-being. Ecosystem services is the technical term for the benefits we get from nature water and food are two obvious and vital benefits but there are many others that are less obvious and frequently over-looked, for example living walls can combat air pollution and the effects of climate change, green roofs can save energy and help prevent flooding. Our aim is to bring these benefits of nature back into the urban environment starting in the heart of London, Soho.
We are a not-for-profit company and our sole aim is to make urban greening solutions more accessible to urban communities, from large companies to small community projects. London needs more green spaces, more trees, more green roofs and more opportunities for growing food locally, we hope to make this happen working within communities and helping them to become more sustainable.
We are working with the brilliant Chelsea Fringe and will be launching groho proper during the fringe festival in May look out for more details coming soon.
