We love the Waterman's Arts Centre but their outside space is sadly neglected.

Brentford Delivery stage

pledged of £5,540

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Yes, we know they're going to be moving, but that's a couple of years away and we want to improve the visitor experience NOW. What's more, our young people doing the work will gain skills that will help them gain a real job. We will use recyclable structures and planting that will move with us to our next project.

What we'll deliver:

  • Clear overgrown areas and make great compost
  • Create wildflower areas for bees and butterflies
  • Plant moveable containers

Why it's a great idea:

Visitors to the centre will have a much better experience - enjoying the great views of the River Thames from an improved platform. Volunteers will receive a Gift in Kind from the Watermans - access to the great range of performing and other arts at free or reduced costs

Steps to get it done:

  • buying plants and equipment
  • clearing overgrown beds
  • create a compost area
  • sowing wild flower seeds
  • create amazing planters

It's a chance for young people learning disabilities and/or autism to grow. We enjoy working outside and want to make a positive contribution to our local places. It keeps us active after leaving school and college and we learn practical skills for life, including gaining work experience.
