The Grow Wild funding has meant that rather than just talking about the project, we have been able to get on with it. In addition to the community workshop and the pond, the funding has paid for water flasks, tea, coffee, a table, an event shelter for when the weather's bad - things that make community events appealing to people. We are also hoping that in the future we might put a container in the space to use as both storage and a meeting place for activities.
We're going to need more funding to complete our other ideas such as planting a community orchard and a big field of sunflowers and working with schools to build houses for birds and bugs. We have really felt supported by Grow Wild, it’s a motivator and the training sessions really spurred people on.
