11 new trees were planted in the Sumner Buildings Garden on Great Guildford Street during the last week of February.
The trees have been funded through the Forestry Commission's London Tree and Woodland Grant Scheme, and have been planted as a first step in improving the local environment of Great Guildford Street between Park Street and Southwark Street as part of Better Bankside's Bankside Urban Forest.
The tree planting culminated in a community event called Thank Goodness for Trees! to launch the the BUNTING Thank Goodness Club, an initiative led by Tate Modern which aims to help local residents access facilities and activities taking place inside Tate Modern including Community Film Club and Tate Community Garden.
