We want to help you crowdfund creative projects that make your area an even better place to live
The current site, which lies along the principle pedestrian route between East and West Greenwich and is passed by children and parents to and from the Meridian Primary School every day, is both unsightly and dangerous, attracting fly-tipping, rubbish dumping, dog fouling and even hypodermic needles. By transforming the site into a garden and community resource, we have the opportunity to create an amenity for the surrounding local businesses (galleries, restaurants, auction house, stone yard, nursery, pilates studio, art space) as well as the local residents. In addition to creating a garden which improves the area, by planting the site with edibles in addition to flowers and trees and shrubs, the garden can be used to as part of the education programme for the local schools to learn about their environment and food growing.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The project lies at the heart of the East Greenwich Conservation Area, an area of rich cultural history but which is in desperate need of investment and urban improvement. This is an opportunity to create a garden which demonstrates what is possible when communities (residents businesses and government) get together to make their environment a better place for all.
We have a vision. We are working with the landowners and local businesses and residents to move things forward. Now we just need to raise funds and then the community will help make it happen through donations of labour and materials,
Steps to get it done:
