The project took the opportunity to develop a simple concept for living green hoarding into a scheme with wider and longer lasting benefits for the environment and local schools.
The legacy living green hoarding will be re-used by one of the projects partner charities ‘Trees for Cities’ at a local school following its use on the project. The modular oak planter boxes that will provide the base of the green hoarding will be sent to a school to provide a garden space for the charities Edible Schools Programme which encourages health eating.
This initiative involves community and appearance but the real initiative is the environmental benefit by the first ever use of a green living hoarding engineered so that it can be reused in another location following the end of the project as opposed to being removed and composted.
