FinTrU supports The Playhouse community garden

Financial services company FinTrU will support the building of a new community garden at The Playhouse.

Developed in conjunction with local community groups, including Lilliput Theatre Company for adults with learning disabilities, the project will see the transformation of a currently underused outside space into a zero waste community herb, vegetable and wildflower garden.

The Playhouse Artitude: Climate, Culture & Circularity project is also shaping the new community garden as a research space for urban ecology and rewilding.

Developed using zero waste principles, project partners aim to use the site as a space for practical, creative workshops about the circular economy, carbon reduction, and climate action.

The partnership and generous support of businesses like FinTrU means their staff and wider community can enjoy great art, champion their creativity and together build a caring, peaceful community. There are so many benefits from this project, which we hope will provide a creative and therapeutic space for the many engagement projects underway at The Playhouse, including youth justice and education programmes, as well as to the general public and visitors to the building. 

A herb and vegetables plot will act as a learning space for community groups to develop urban horticulture and growing skills in order to encourage local food production. Providing an outdoor arts space for performance, art, conversation and knowledge exchange, the garden will also become an urban ecology test site, and a hub for learning and education on carbon reduction practices, urban growing, creative practice and the circular economy.
