Our Mission

Our Mission is to promote London as a pollinator sanctuary and help provide everyone with the resources and knowledge to create their own garden. 

Our Goal

Our Goal is to help the community to recognize the
important role that pollinators play in our
long-term food security. 


Outside the glimmering lights of downtown London lies a hidden paradise for many sentient beings, which we often don't think about. A pollinator's pathway weaves through urban structures.
Therefore to help their journey, we bring that hidden paradise closer to home...
