HELLO! PLEASED TO MEET YOU
Founded by activist Ellen Miles in 2021, Dream Green is an East London based social enterprise. We're green-fingered vigilantes on a mission to make cities greener by giving everyday people the information, inspiration, and tools to plant in public places.
We've provided youth groups with nature-based skills, communities with grant funding and expert guidance, and festival-goers with messy, radical fun. Whatever we're doing, wherever we are, our work combines hands-on action with timely ideas about community and climate action.
A world in which cities are more green than grey, and all communities can have a say in shaping their neighbourhood.
Empower individuals and communities to get guerrilla gardening, by providing accessible online guides, real-life workshops, and tailored one-to-one support.
OUR MANIFESTO (C.L.A.S.H)
A guerrilla garden is not just for spring! Be your site’s gardening angel, ensuring it’s watered, protected, litter free, and nourished.
Commit to care
Work with nature, not against it. Go organic, embrace undervalued lifeforms (from "weeds" to woodlice), and prioritise native species.
Let nature lead
Act in the area where you’ve put down your own roots. Others' neighbourhoods are theirs to shape (though you can support them!)
Borrow and repurpose instead of buying new, use peat-free compost, and source plants and parts as locally as possible.
Reasons we guerrilla garden might be serious, but the act doesn’t have to be! Play music, bring snacks, get creative, and celebrate small wins.
