Sophie Leguil: More than Weeds

From Saturday Morning, 8:41 am on 25 July 2020

More Than Weeds is a project aimed at changing our perception of urban plants growing on walls, pavements and tree pits. It's the brainchild of Sophie Leguil, a freelance botanical consultant based in London

Inspired by the "Sauvages de ma rue" initiative created in France in 2001, More Than Weeds aims to encourage local authorities to embrace spontaneous flora, and to help them manage it in a sustainable way through the publication of best practice guides.

Urban flora offers a unique way to improve our connectivity with nature, as well as providing valuable ecosystem services.
