Children in schools will come to learn about biodiversity and what is needed for plants to grow, and also appreciate and respect the environment with a long-term view on understanding sustainability.

Walsall Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

To provide gardens to schools in Walsall. Millfield School has a WASUP Garden already. Each Garden costs about £250. I have the names of plants and where they can be bought from. I will contact 10 schools to start with to register their interest. Already contacted St Michael's School that is interested. The gardens will be designed and built with the help of children. Completion time will be 6 months and I will ensure that the project will be sustainable and benefit most children especially those with special needs such as Autistic or ADHD.

What we'll deliver:

  • 25 WASUP Gardens
  • Donate £250 to each school after ensuring the above criterion are met
  • For the school to build the Gadrens

Why it's a great idea:

Carry out nature-based activities and bring wild life into the garden, such as hedge hogs or bees to live. My vision is that ‘growing a garden’, with wild life will be fun for children too, with lots of different types of minibeast and insects such as ladybirds, bees, spiders and woodlice living in bug hotels. These minibeasts can then use bug hotels as a safe space to shelter, lay their eggs, raise their young, and seek refuge from predators.

Steps to get it done:

  • Engaging schools who would like WASUP Gardens

This activity will impress on children the importance of respecting the environment and at the same time learn about what nature can offer. They will be responsible for watering and nurturing plants
