Trees for Cities is a charity working in partnership with local and national organisations and councils to match fund and develop school grounds, turning them into green urban oases.
One such project is Planting Healthy Air in Schools, the first of which in Bradford, is currently being created at St Columba's Catholic Primary on Tong Street.
We are working together on a bespoke design to plant a variety of trees, hedgerows, perennials and areas for food growing, building shelters with seating and running workshops to investigate pollutants and lifestyle changes.
We are now able to offer a second Planting Healthy Air project to an eligible primary school in the Bradford District.
Our criteria includes; a school contribution of £5,000 towards the £45,000 project cost, close to / affected by idling engines or a constant flow of traffic, some hard and soft landscaping with space to plant screening near the roadside affecting the grounds
and situated in an area of deprivation with little access to green space.
