The Motion Room project extends warm thanks to Phil Pettitt, Coordinator of Community Greening, and his team for supporting us in 2015 to deliver skills development workshops for local residents in the 2168 Postcode Area. We delivered permaculture skills workshops to more than 60 local people and we have already sold 16 vertical gardens or planter boxes at a very competitive price to local people.
The Liverpool Men's Shed is making the gardening boxes to a cost-effective design by our artist in residence, Joey Ruigrok van der Werven.
Local residents reflected on the value of the workshops, texting us to say:
