Last year we were delighted to be awarded Funding from Corporation of London’s Enjoying Green Spaces and the Natural Environment Grant.
From The Ground Up connects elders from 2 sheltered housing tower blocks with West Ham Park to inspire material for a QR code digital art installation in the park.
We were poised to start the project in March 2020 when the first lockdown was announced.
Fortunately we were able to take a small group of residents on a socially distanced autumn walk and tour expertly led by Pete, West Ham Parks head gardener.
A few weeks ago we dashed out to photograph the snow which gave the park a light dusting.
Keeping our fingers crossed that we can return safely with ‘human participants’ to the spring.
