Our largest community project in 2019 was the revitalisation of Slade Gardens, where we ran volunteer & training sessions throughout the year.
The picture below shows how the site was in autumn 2018. With help from corporate volunteers, we demolished many of the old structures which were unsound, & built new raised beds, paths, a polytunnel and pond.
The 3 existing beehives on site (installed & managed by the amazing local project BeeUrban) were retained, with an improved viewing structure built, to allow everyone to take their time & feel comfortable while observing these amazing & essential insects.
In the spring of 2019 we had already hosted more than 700 hours of volunteering from corporate teams & local individuals.
