Morus Londinium's editor and co-creator with The Conserrvation Foundation, Peter Coles, was also one of the co-founders of the Urban Tree Festival three years ago. This year because of lockdown we faced the monumental challenge of turning something that had always been centered around walks, talks and mostly outdoor activities into a 100% online event at the end of May.
Morus Londinium led a virtual walk around some of Chiswick's celebrated and less well known veteran mulberry trees . And Peter took part in an urban orchard webinar with the Orchard Project's Jo Homan and artist Derek Man.
Remarkably, and due to the creativity and enormous investment of energy of al the people involved, the Festival was a great success with more events and greater attendance than either of the two previous years. The result is that we’ve been nominated for a London Tree and Woodland Award. The winner will be decided by public vote.
