Nature. What’s the point?

Living in a city, especially one as big and as busy as London, makes it easy for us to lose a connection with nature. We’re exposed more to a jungle of concrete, rather than a jungle of trees, and you could be forgiven for thinking that there simply isn’t any nature in London.

I’m Finn, a 16-year-old who is a part of the youth programme at Surrey Docks Farm. Every time I visit the Farm, I get to experience the nature that surrounds us daily- it’s always there, as long as you know where to look.

I wanted to share the nature that surrounds us, so together with London Youth, the London Wildlife Trust, and a little helping hand from the Farm, I’ve put together “Nature. What’s the point?” It’s a completely free event, aimed at young people like myself (but open to all ages) with the aim of showing you how much nature truly surrounds you, and why you should care.

Come along to the Farm, on Saturday the 2nd of July, 12pm onwards, to get involved making insect hotels, tasting foraged teas, learning how to help bees, and bringing out your green fingers.

I really hope to see you there.
