Edge Hill Station Garden

Home > Projects > Edge Hill Station Garden

At Edge Hill station, Metal and a host of brilliant volunteers have worked together to turn an abandoned part of the station into a beautiful community garden.

 

Metal is pleased to announce that we’ve received funding from Tesco’s Bags of Help initiative, thank you to all those who voted for us!

A full programme of art, food and gardening will be announced Spring 2017, exploring the importance of public green spaces and how they benefit our day-to-day lives.

 

Volunteer Call Out

We’re also currently looking for new volunteers to help prepare the garden for Spring, if you are interested in getting involved please contact: maryjane@metalculture.com

 

About the Tesco Bags of Help initiative

Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across England and Wales. The scheme has seen three community groups and projects in each region awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.

The public voted in store to decide which local groups should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards, 2,421 organisations from Tesco’s 400 regions up and down the UK will receive a share of the Bags of Help fund.
