About Leaves Breathe

Our vision - about us

Our Mission Statement


For the public benefit, Leaves Breathe exists to advance environmental protection through the creation and enhancement of valuable community green spaces across Greater London.

We focus on those areas where there are few green spaces or where there is a specific need to improve existing green spaces for the use of local communities.

We especially support those areas where there is less opportunity for, or access to, funding for community green spaces.

Charitable Work


To achieve this mission statement we take on the following charitable work:

  • Connect gardening staff and Corporate Volunteers to community green sites.
  • Lead training for community gardeners and gardening groups in matters financial, legal, marketing, and horticultural to help them best look after their areas.
  • We engage communities by putting on free events, especially for isolated groups.
  • Have a look at the sites we work at here.
  • Read more about our Corporate Volunteer Days. If you want to book one, please email
