Earthworks on Wheels is a pilot project currently operating one day a week
We are working hard to bring this exciting new project to our community. Our talented and hardworking Earthworkers are coming to a garden near you!
What is Earthworks on Wheels?
This project empowers Earthworkers to provide a basic gardening service to vulnerable members of the community including older people, low income families and people suffering from chronic illness. Earthworkers are also involved in the maintenance and upkeep of public green spaces.
Benefits to Earthworkers
Earthworks on Wheels aims to 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 vocational experience and the development and sharing of applied horticultural skills in the community. Engaging with the wider public will improve community cohesion and raise awareness of the value of adults with learning disabilities.
Benefits to the wider community
Earthworks on Wheels reduces social isolation for vulnerable and older people by providing regular social contact and interaction with our friendly teams. The project will support them in their efforts to live independently, maintain their gardens and 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.
