Help us to lay a new sandstone pathway in The Hoxton Community Garden. The current narrow tarmac pathway needs to be replaced as it is cracking under the pressure of tree roots.
Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.
The current pathway has bumps in it where tree roots have pushed the tarmac up and it has begun to crack the surface. In addition, the pathway is too narrow in places for disabled access and this hinders its further widespread use. If we could buy the materials to relay the pathway with a much more sympathetic, sustainable and maintainable material, we would have a much improved garden and little oasis for Hoxton's local residents and businesses to enjoy.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This will improve access to the garden by widening the pathway. It will make the community garden a safer place to visit as local residents and traders will no longer have a trip hazard from the bumps and cracks in the path. The sandstone path will improve the look of the area and compliment the existing plants and flowers that the community has planted and nurtured. This will ensure that the community garden is around for another 33 years.
Steps to get it done:
The pathway is approximately 170 meters long. It's width varies from 30cm to 1 meter wide. In the center is a circle of tarmac that we want to add an additional flower bed feature to and install a pathway around it. The scaffolding boards that we want to use are £504. The dumpy bags of sandstone are £89 each and cover 8 square meters. Therefore we need 22 bags (tonnes) at a cost of £1,958. Therefore materials for this project total £2,462.
