I just wanted to let you know about a project that I' am overseeing via the Noel Park Big Local: Green Spaces Project. Noel Park Primary School, located on Gladstone Avenue and Lymington Avenue. Outside the school, on the pavement are metal railings. I had the idea of installing flower box planters to the railings. I have done a lot of research and found a suitable planter. It contains a reservoir and therefore eliminates the need for constant watering!
I have met with the school and contacted the Highways agency and Haringey Council to seek written permission.The project started last week and progress is steady. I think we would need 6-8 planters. There will be a community workshop to help with the installation, planting etc in either late March or early April.
On top of this, there is a lot of potential to install Wildflower Tree Pits*. A treated timber frame lined and filled with soil with the trunk protected against erosion. Seeds or plants can then be planted and walla! the neighbourhood starts to look a bit greener and nicer :)
See you around the neighbourhood!
