The Green Project
Starting in Spring 2021, our Green Project will bring local children and families, schools and partner organisations together to transform our green spaces at Coram’s Fields. Led by a team of community volunteers, the project will empower our local community to take ownership of a number of previously underused green spaces across our seven acre site, creating growing hubs and developing natural habitats for our resident bees and other local wildlife.
In addition to improving access to and the quality of green areas for our community, our volunteers will benefit from having direct access to gardening, and training, accreditation and development opportunities. Volunteers will be also able to harvest their freshly grown fruit and vegetables to use at home, and for use in our social enterprise café.
Our green space and play facilities are a vital community resource, they support the mental and physical wellbeing and development of children of all ages. For many of our local children, we are considered as their back garden and families frequently visit us every day. We enable children to run around, discover nature and most importantly, play.
This Project wants to inspire our volunteers and local community to learn about gardening, growing food, the environment, wildlife, and the importance of biodiversity through educational sessions and workshops
