Location

Situation

Environmental conditions on this site are incredibly poor - fly-tipping and litter are common problems, and green areas are often used for drug abuse, rough sleeping and rubbish dumping. Residents feel unsafe in these areas, although they want to be able to enjoy them with their families.

Solution

A Rocha will clean up and restore Wolf Fields as an area for food growing, urban conservation and family education. We will work with local schools, churches and police to clean up the area and establish areas for recreation, food growing, environmental education and wildlife conservation. Through this project, families will be able to enjoy and learn about the natural world in their own neighbourhoods.
