Greener Kent

Kent, the Garden of England, is home to rich and unique landscapes, heritage and wildlife, making it an incredible place to live, work and visit. The natural environment has enormous benefits for our health, wellbeing and local economies.

Greener Kent is our campaign to inspire everyone to do what they can to protect and enhance our woodlands, chalk streams, wildflower meadows, coastline and all the other natural gems that we treasure, so that our communities can thrive in balance with nature.
