Watford Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

A group of 3 over 50s have an allotment that we.l started last year. We would like to make use of recycled materials to aid in planting. Such as plastic bottles and cats for tubs We also would like to ensure that we attract as much insects as possible to cross pollinate the flora and fauna. We find that even though the allotment is hard work it also a haven in the city

What we'll deliver:

  • Use bark to create accessible biodegradable pathways
  • Use recycled plastics to plant
  • Use seeds that can help wildlife

Why it's a great idea:

It’s a great idea because it helps wildlife and keeps over 50s in our community active and agile and provides purpose and structure

Steps to get it done:

  • To increase the amount of plants and insects

We firmly believe that creating our own food is good for the in Envirovent and reduces waste
