Join the movement to create, fund and deliver local projects that make a difference in Doncaster!
A planning application was recently submitted, but approval is yet to be confirmed. No funds will be transferred to the project until planning permission has been confirmed and seen by Spacehive. The former disused sand quarry will be transformed from an area of anti social behaviour and fly tipping into a vibrant sensory garden for ecotherapy and community forest school. Litter will be removed, brambles will be cleared and new habitats will be created to enable wildlife to thrive, a shallow wildlife pond will be created to encourage insects and amphibians. Native plants, hedgerow and wildflowers will be planted to regenerate the area and attract pollinators. Natural structures will be created in keeping with the landscape to encourage education and wellbeing sessions and children's free play. Raised beds will be installed for community growing and plot to plate projects. The area will be secured with perimeter fencing to prevent further vandalism and antisocial behaviour.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Wildlings will provide outdoor activities to promote physical and mental wellbeing in the form of Ecotherapy, Meditation, Forest School outdoor education and play sessions. Working with the local community to generate an interest in nature connection, improve physical activity and create a focal point as an alternative to antisocial behaviour. In the next phase of the project after this, an outdoor classroom will be installed with handwashing facilities.
