Tiny Forest, a nationwide initiative building and monitoring small woodland plots in inner-city spaces across the UK (run by Earthwatch Europe), received funding from the Prime Foundation to buy monitoring equipment for their Perry Common plot in Birmingham.
Funding was generated through Prime’s work delivering a new specialist facility at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital as well as a new multi-storey car park for the City Hospital Birmingham.

“We are most grateful to the Prime Foundation for engaging early on with Tiny Forests and for their generous support in providing essential teacher resources which empower educators to provide inspiring environmental and outdoor learning. These crucial resources provide hands-on STEM and cross curricular activities to engage teachers and students in the climate and biodiversity crises and to take positive action for the planet. We also value our ongoing connection with the Prime Foundation and hope to be working with them again as we engage more communities and companies with Tiny Forests over the coming years.”
Neil Bailey, Director of Philanthropy at Earthwatch Europe
