St Peter’s Primary School
St Peter’s is located in an area of London that has high levels of air pollution from the volume of traffic in and around Victoria mainline station and Victoria National Bus station.
The project was funded by the Mayor’s Greener City Fund and Grosvenor Estates.
We planted a series of ivy screens 2.3m high in 7 custom made planters along the rear wall between the busy road and the playground. Rosemary, mint, thyme and sage were planted at the base of the ivy screens. 5 olive trees were also planted with vinca minor and grasses, with a bench between 2 of them to create more seating.
The school also hopes to incorporate the green screen and planting into the children’s basic education about caring for the planet, including learning about the herbs and how to care for the all the plants. The school said they "want the children to become the adults who can help reduce the harmful impact of climate change and create a better London and world”.
