    Story

    Golden Leaf of London is a new charity on a mission to create a ribbon of vegetation to run across the city

    Our mission:

    Healing our connection with nature and helping communities to thrive.

    To achieve this, we want to connect local communities to nature by creating Living arts projects consisting in ribbons of vegetation within cities, using the infrastructure of a leaf to connect nature-based areas and initiatives into one walkable route.

    We are raising donations to fund the first two stages of our project:

    2021> Creation of awareness campaigns and set-up an indoor launch exhibition showcasing a giant model of our ribbon of vegetation in Nov 2021.

    Spring 2022 to 2025 > kick-off the planting of the Golden Leaf of London to rewild the A4 highway and create green walks.

    How your money will be used:

    Your kind donations will be used to finance the actual design of the project, the set-up of the exhibition, communication material, and initial planting.

    The Team of Trustees

    Liz Marsh is the Founder of a successful floral design business with a history of creating floral art installations on behalf of clients both corporate and private. She conceived the Golden Leaf idea during lockdown as a modern art project that would put a stake in the sand and commit to a more sustainable world for us and our children.

    Lenka Moore has a background in consultancy and project management in the sustainability sector and is currently setting up her own initiative to create a Trust fund for the Earth. She has sat on the board of trustees for charities in the US and is now exploring the UK charities sector.

    Charity no: 1197128

    Supporters:

    The trustees have been supported by Lord Fink, ex CEO of Man Group plc and ex treasurer of the Conservative party, a leading light in environmental activities through the charities and foundations he supports.

    Paul de Zylva, the chair of The National Park City Foundation has been advising the trustees and Liz from the beginning

    Lisa Drake and Andy Downey from Elliott Wood, the engineering company, have been integral in supporting the project with their guidance and the use of their headquarters building 'The Building Society'

    Gina and Mel Mula run a creative agency and have helped to hone the ideas and planning structure

    Steve McCaulay, a leading coach in the government sector (advising African nations on forward planning) helped to drill down into the concept

    We are grateful to Marie Geneste and Fiona Hamilton from the C Collective for their help with the branding and the creation of the website

      We are truly grateful for your support so far - we have reached the first milestone of £1000! But we still have further to go - with our offline donations we have reached a third of our initial target - £10,000 to take the foundation forwards. Please share our story with your friends and give what you can so we all benefit from a more wholesome environment in future!

      We are incredibly grateful to all those who have donated, both on this page and privately. We still need to keep going to raise the funds to take the next step though so we ask that you keep spreading the word and telling your friends. If 1,000 people gave £10 that would count for something... so please don't feel your contribution doesn't count!
