Comments Comments Off on An Update From Wolf Fields
Over the school half term Wolf Fields was a hive of activity as projects that have been in the planning start to come to fruition. Work started on the Sensory Garden which is based on the design of a local school child who won the Sensory Garden design competition in 2013/14. A contractor has been hired to complete all the groundworks which should be in place for planting to begin in the spring.
The keenly awaited shipping container arrived in the midst of the Sensory Garden works, it is hoped this will provide a safe and secure place to store tools and equipment for the weekly work party. The groundworks for the container were prepared over the previous weeks. The local community volunteers pulled together to dig a container sized patch out from the undergrowth and put in sound foundations for the container to sit on. Over the course of one morning our volunteers moved four tonnes of building material for the foundations! Going forward we hope to be able to engage local children in painting a mural onto the container and fit a green roof to help it blend into its setting. In the future we hope to be able to install a solar panel on the roof to power a light bulb inside!
This October has also seen the start of work on the storytelling area and fire pit which we hope will become an important focal point for the local community members using Wolf Fields.
