We are looking to develop a wellbeing project in collaboration with young people and families within the local community in recruitment, workshops, campaigns, events and creating a legacy. We aim to raise awareness about wellbeing, upcycling, develop skills, bring people together and promote green tech. The project will include an outdoor space to host a garden club and bring the community together to create a legacy on an enclosed piece of land not maintained. Our project will start involving 10 young people between the age of 12 to 16 to restore the garden and make it safer. We will host open days and workshops to promote our project, community outreach to ensure people are aware. Future categories: Young Families, Young people, (different age groups), Special Educational Needs & Disabilities, (SEND), Retirees, Enthusiasts, and Special Interest groups, e.g. BAME, LGBT, underprivileged, etc. Other organizations, e.g., Scouts & Cadets; Sports/Dance groups, have options available.

What we'll deliver:

  • Access a secret garden
  • Access unique workshops in their community
  • Learn about Green Technology
  • More activities for teh local community
  • The possibility t get involved by sharing knowledge or learn
  • Learn about gardening
  • Learn about health and nutrition
  • Access a secured green space

Why it's a great idea:

The benefits of starting an upcycle project are to bring local families together in the community to encourage creativity and innovation to help towards mother nature. Learning a new skill to repair old/unwanted items and give them new life and having a one-off item. Our Upcycled garden will bring kids together to show them the best way to reduce waste and save money. This is an opportunity to get creative and showcase the kids' upcycle to the community.

Steps to get it done:

  • To buy equipment
  • Provide learning opportunities
  • Run workshops
