A community DIY build & environmental improvement project for the over 50s. Our Pallet to Planter project started in late February. We are reclaiming wood and repurposing it to build planters to give away!
We have also been delivering planters all over the area for residents to adopt and grow small wildflower meadows in their front gardens and driveways (‘pit stops’) – so everyone gets to enjoy the blooms – especially the bees
At the beginning of 2022 we teamed up with the local Neighbourhood Network Scheme to do a residents survey and some focus group discussions to help us understand what matters to people living in Brandwood’s neighbourhoods, what’s happening in your area now, what’s not, and what would residents like to happen?
This is helping to shape our plans moving forward.
Between May and August 2022 we are running a project to shine a spotlight on all the brilliant places and people who live in the Brandwood area, brighten up our streets with creativity and wildflower meadows and bring people together at events, workshops and community litter picks.
Together we can put our little corner of South Birmingham on the map.
Let’s get talking, and let’s give the rest of the city something to talk about!
