At imby we’re helping people bring nature back in to their urban environment.
Our vision is a world where everyone can have a positive impact through their own and their community’s actions in whatever green space they have available to them, be it a garden, patio, balcony, or park - a world in which we see these spaces as connected parts of the community of plants, animals and people that make up our urban ecosystem.
Garden with confidence
imby helps people with all levels of gardening experience get out into their garden. You tell us what plants you have, we provide simple, clear advice on how to look after them, and the confidence to get your hands dirty.
