To convert a Double Decker bus to create a community greenhouse in which we can grow fresh produce for inclusion for our food parcels for distribution to local residents most in need.
Help us transform our riverside double-decker bus into a buzzing community greenhouse space in Walker, where we will grow fresh organic produce for local residents. Volunteers will plan, plant, grow, harvest and distribute the produce whilst interacting in this vibrant ‘indoor-outdoor’ environment. Due to the cost-of-living crisis, local residents struggle to access and afford fresh, healthy eating options. This exciting project will provide the opportunity to maintain nutritious dietary options and will also enhance health and wellbeing by promoting physical activity – both indoors and out, reducing social isolation, and helping to grow friendships and community connections. As well as transforming the bus’s interior, local artists will be invited to contribute ideas to rejuvenate its exterior and to showcase our bountiful bus. This eye-catching addition to the riverside landscape will raise awareness of our charity and our contribution to the community.
