Planting of the micro forest at the Horniman Museum & Gardens is now almost complete. A 300 square metre area has been redeveloped alongside the boundary with the South Circular, planted using the Miyamaki method to create a dense and fast-growing micro forest that will act as a visual, noise and particulate barrier to the gardens. Funding was provided by a public appeal to which the Dulwich Society contributed £500. Errol Fernandes, the Horniman’s Head of Horticulture, explained the design and planting to donors, including members of the Dulwich Society's executive committee.
