Northolt Delivery stage

pledged of £9,672

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

The Children's Centre provide activities for families in Northolt and the surrounding areas, including Stay and Play sessions for children aged 0-5 years, Baby Stay and Play (specifically for babies and young children 0-1 years), Infant Massage (0-1 years) and Cheryl’s Dance sessions (term-time only). The centre is in Lime Tress Park but they have their own space for play, this is currently a grey area and an old sandpit that has been covered up. We have been working with the centre delivering workshops to families around the growing and cooking workshops. Teaching families how to live a greener and healthier lifestyle. Our aim is to create a community garden with seating and planters for families to be able to learn more about growing, be able to grow veg/fruit and be able to facilitate in outdoor workshops, around the environment, wildlife and habitats. The space can also be used for reading time and other learning activities. Our aim is to support the centre with growing workshops.

What we'll deliver:

  • Build a seating and planting area over old sand pit
  • Build 6 planters outside the centre for growing fruit and veg
  • Deliver workshops around gardening and the environment
  • Install shed

Why it's a great idea:

The project will benefit the community centre, and wider community with a space to grow and learn together. The garden will also create a nice environemnt for outdoor workshops and learning about the environment, wildlife in the park and give young families and their childten a chance to engage with nature. This project will also be able to teach young families and children about the environment and wildlife, global warming and learn together on ways to support their local environment and the planet to be greener and cleaner. The workshops will include Outdoor Explorers (Growing Kids) sessions for 2 - 5 year olds and also Cooking Kids sessions for 3-5 year olds teaching parents/carers and young children how to grow and cook healthy vegetarian meals.

Steps to get it done:

  • Build outdoor seating and planters
  • plant edible plants, trees and shrubs
  • deliver environmental workshops
  • deliver gardening and cooking workshops
