Project Category: Registered charity
We are delighted to be working in partnership with Surrey Square School – a primary school based in Walworth, Southwark – who gave the go ahead to help transform their outdoor space so it resembles something similar to the home of the Telletubbie. There is method in our madness…
Following a successful Spacehive crowdfunding campaign, we installed and customised a new 18ft x 16ft polytunnel community garden, including new raised planter beds, on the roof of Surrey Square School’s pavilion adjoining the brow of its hill.
Eight tonnes of soil mix was transferred to the raised planter beds by local volunteers, and corporate volunteers from Hands on London and Good Gym Southwark. The new polytunnel garden has enabled an additional weekly food growing and gardening after-school education club. We further developed the garden, installing more raised planter beds and an orchard.
