Open House Event

On Sunday we were delighted to take part in an event in conjunction with the team behind the Children’s City – another set of Meanwhile winners, who plan to establish a community garden actively designed and maintained by children. The event allowed us to promote and exchange our ideas as well as inform the community about our ambitions for the area in the future

We played the production line game again, inviting families, children, local residents and curious passers-by to think about the last item they threw away and what they might do instead to transform that item into something more valuable. Ideas included converting a washing machine into a dog kennel and a yoghurt carton into a model car!

         

It was great to have such a positive reaction from all of the people we met! Many thanks to Cany Ash from Children’s City for organizing the event, to all of our visitors and finally to Steve, Christina, Andy, Beverly and Leela for giving up their Sunday (in exchange for something much more fun!)
