Earthwatch Europe and Hammersmith and Fulham Council had identified a Tiny Forest planting site at Hammersmith Park.

Fever Tree was enthusiastic about both the proximity of the site to its offices, and the opportunity to be involved in London’s first Tiny Forest. A key part of Fever-Tree’s strategy is to help enrich biodiversity where we work and live, create employee engagement opportunities. Tiny Forest fit this goal, as Fever-Tree’s colleagues could get involved in planting and potentially more opportunities as the Tiny Forest develops to benefit the local community and urban wildlife.

Fever-Tree agreed to fund the Tiny Forest and it was planted in March 2021. There were challenges due to the COVID-19 lockdowns taking place at that time. The planting date was moved several times with the hope that volunteers would be able to join.

Unfortunately, as lockdown did not let up, it was decided to hold the planting day with just a few people, socially-distanced. But the planting day was a success, resulting in a new Tiny Forest in London situated in an urban community close to the Fever-Tree office.

Later that summer, two Science days were held with Fever-Tree colleagues, giving them the opportunity to learn about the Tiny Forest and engage more deeply with the project.

The partnership between Fever-Tree and Earthwatch Europe has grown from strength to strength since the planting of this Tiny Forest.
