Help us create a community garden at Jubilee Lodge in the grounds of Osterley Park

Isleworth Delivery stage

£165
pledged of £2,155

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

We have access to a great space at Jubilee Lodge where young people with learning disabilities or autism can learn to grow flowers and veg, enjoy being outdoors and make a contribution to the upkeep of Osterley Park. Not just a gardening project, participants gain confidence, improve their communication skills, create something useful and enjoy working as a team. We like using reclaimed materials and recycling, so will use old railway sleepers or pallets, have been gifted some patio slabs, and will use natural elements such as logs from fallen trees.

What we'll deliver:

  • Build some wheel-chair accessible raised beds
  • Create a paved area
  • Install some seating
  • Install a sink to our outside toilet

Why it's a great idea:

Young people with learning disabilities or autism are keen to be a part of the community and to make a contribution. At Our Barn we are able to provide skilled and experienced support that allows our participants to grow and develop as individuals as well as become part of a team. Participants take ownership of the project, make decisions on what is planted and where and learn skills such as time management and budgeting, and planning what tools and equipment they need to complete a task.

Steps to get it done:

  • Build a firepit
  • Create a seating area
  • Lay paving slabs
  • Install sink to outside toilet
  • Create raised beds

In twelve months we managed to donate 4,000 volunteer hours to Osterley Park and other public green spaces.We are ambitious for our group and believe many participants are capable of employment. We have other projects that focus on that.

Our Wish List

We're currently looking for people to offer skills and stuff to develop our project! Check out the list of what we need below and then use the 'Offer Something' button to the right to get involved.
  • An electric hedge trimmer - our garden is surrounded by hedges and we are currently trimming it with a pair of shears!
  • Jumbo bag of peat free compost - we're making our own, but need more!
  • Seeds, seedlings, plants. We would like to plant a number of fruit trees, lots of herbs as well as wild flowers and vegetables.
  • A team of volunteers for the day! This project is enormous and we can use all the help we can get! We're in a stunning location, not too far from a tube line and the M4.
  • Gardening tools- spades, forks and hand tools. A wheel barrow or two. Cans of outdoor paint. Old pallets.
  • Old garden furniture. Tables, chairs, benches, swing seats. Anything we can paint and 'do up'.
