About The Shady Lanes Project

Planting a verge garden is a small change we can all make.

It might bring you pleasure. (likely 🙂 )

It might inspire your neighbours to do theirs. (unlikely 🙁 )

Or it might bring you pain if you get it wrong or end up in a dispute. 🥺

But on its own, it won’t make much difference to the big problems we face.

The Shady Lanes Project is for people who want their small local actions to add up to a bigger change.

It’s for people who want to come together with a common purpose to create the scale that will transform our streets, cool our cities, and build the networks and collaborations we need to make a big difference in addressing climate change.
