Mayor's Greener Fund
Starting February 2019, we were supported by this fund to update our container, turning it from a soulless container in to a lovely wood-clad outdoor class room. We also created new growing beds and the whole area was resurfaced with a clean, bright resin so it was on one level, making the container easily accessible. We regenerated neglected spaces by creating new planting areas full of vibrant flowers, built insect houses to support wildlife, installed solar panel watering systems and filled containers to brighten up the walkways around the park. With over 250 participants, we ran a three community events (Easter Egg forage, making items from herbs and a tea party) plus involved local residents, office workers and even tourists in our weekly volunteering at our gardening club.
