Communi-Trees

KOKO’s 'Communi-Trees' project is creating mini forests on local council estates and has so far planted 90 mature trees on 8 council estates, fostering youth and community involvement through environmental education. KOKO Foresters maintain the trees, earning £11.25 per hour over 2 years, reducing external council costs and supporting the local economy. The foundation provides tree maintenance equipment.

The success has led to a partnership with The Ashden Climate Trust, aiming to expand to 20 more boroughs, starting with 3 new boroughs and estates in the autumn of 2024.

The communi-trees next phase will be to plant over 3 estates in Spring in Kilburn, hopefully using edible fruit trees to create Camdens first orchard.
