Earthworks on Wheels is a pilot project currently operating one day a week
We are working hard to bring an exciting new project to our community. Our talented and hardworking Earthworkers are coming to a garden near you!
What is Earthworks on Wheels?
Our Earthworkers are supported to provide a basic gardening service to vulnerable members of the community including; older people, low income families and people suffering from chronic illness. The Earthworkers are also involved in the maintenance and upkeep of public green spaces.
Why Earthworks on Wheels?
The purpose of Earthworks on Wheels is twofold:
- The project will improve the confidence, self-esteem and self- worth of Earthworkers by enabling them to help others in their community. This increased sense of self-worth will be enhanced by the development of applied horticultural skills and vocational experience. Our Earthworkers will be empowered to share and develop their skills in the community. Engaging with the wider public will improve community cohesion and raise awareness of the value of adults with learning disabilities.
- We intend to reduce social isolation for vulnerable and older people by providing regular social contact and interaction with our friendly teams. Beneficiaries of the project will feel supported in their efforts to live independently, maintain their gardens and to remain in their homes, thereby benefiting the wider community.
The gardening service is provided free of charge to the recipients, with a suggested donation of £30.
