Congratulations to Lewisham for being th eBorough of Culture for London 2022 (LLBOF22). Seven Poet Trees is pleased to be part of the (LLBOF22) and as part of stay in alignment with Lewisham’s Green Commitment and Creative Culture, Seven Poet Trees will highlight the importance of exploring the climate science perspective of tree planting and its wider effects within an area.

We are working in close partnership with Lewisham Borough Council’s Tree Officer to highlight the value of the work in the custodianship of the borough's natural environment and use the poetry spoken word/literature participatory component of the project to spark conversations around tree planting to lower the urban heat island effect, provide for biodiversity and enhance mental health.
