#24: Luke Newcombe (GrowN22) and Charles Linton - London National Park City Rangers
Show Notes

This is the first episode in an ongoing series exploring the work of London National Park City Rangers. I go 'in the field' to to meet Rangers Luke Newcombe and Charles Linton in Wood Green, North London, to see some urban greening interventions first hand:

  • Green public space at Wood Green Library
  • Green roofs
  • The borough's first Parklet/Pocket Park
  • Nature Reserve

Luke also gives advice for how you can start greening your own neighbourhood.

Luke runs GrowN22, a Community Interest Company dedicated to transforming unlikely, disused and neglected spaces and gardens across Haringey into vibrant community gardens and growing spaces made for and by local people.

Charles works in outdoor education and is a self-professed invertebrate nerd.
