Petition Closed

Mabley Green in Hackney is currently a boring but quite large patch of grass. We received £100,000 (held by the council) to improve it and we want the money to be spent on creating the world's largest edible park full of fruit and nut trees, herbs and shrubs for all to enjoy. The planning decisons are being made over the next few weeks so please help us right now.

We have a lot of social deprivation around here and some of the highest childhood obesity rates in England. We can really make a difference but we will need that money to be spent on outreach and community work (and a few trees too of course).

By signing this petition, you will help us show the council that we are serious about this project, that it has widespread public backing and that they should spend the money on this idea (involving trees and community outreach) and not on bigger car parks or something of that nature!
