It is in an area of Wolverhampton called Portobello. The green space once had 2 large electricity pylons on it, which have long gone. The space has a already established path through it, but the whole of the space is very overgrown. The plan is the clear the paths and create a perfect mix of left overgrowth for wildlife and cleared areas for people to use and enjoy. There will also be raised flower beds.

What we'll deliver:

  • Clear path; Certain certain patches of the grass; Build raised flower beds; Paint gates and fence work

Why it's a great idea:

This is a great idea, because the local community are very keen to bring this space into community use for the first time in a long time. Also the space is ideal for a nature garden, owing to it's size and also the potential wildlife that already live within.

Steps to get it done:

  • Local volunteers; Catch 22 volunteers; Wolverhampton Homes; Catch 22 staff
