Shelter for Forest School

Billericay Community Garden By Billericay Community Garden

We need funding to buy and install posts that can be used to attach tarpaulins and create shelter over the fire pit and mud kitchen.

Billericay Delivery stage

pledged of £416

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

The Forest School area of Billericay Community Garden is used weekly by families and childcare providers. During wet weather it is very difficult to use and share time around the campfire. The mud kitchen area is extremely popular with Forest Schoolers and is always busy with mud pie making! Both the fire circle and mud kitchen need posts installed that will allow tarpaulin shelters to be erected over them in wet weather so that they can be used and enjoyed by everyone all year round.

What we'll deliver:

  • 6 wooden posts with metal bases

Why it's a great idea:

The shelter over the log circle will ensure that the campfire can be lit, marshmallows toasted, songs sung and cosy time shared. The shelter over the mud kitchen will enable children to continue to connect with natural materials, play imaginatively and make muddy concoctions on the wettest of days!

Steps to get it done:

  • Purchasing wooden posts, bases, concrete and tarpaulin
