In a prominent area directly outside the Whitley Bay Metro station, we built three raised planters, which the local community will tend to and plant their own fruit and veg. We also planted four apple trees, as well as turfing the strip in between. 

Not only will this initiative help offset some of our carbon footprint (planting one tree is roughly the equivalent of one tonne of carbon); it will also allow local residents to help themselves to the produce from the community garden whenever they like. 

The team enjoyed this mini-transformation project – and we even had the Project Manager’s daughter helping out! We look forward to seeing the results as the community garden is put to good use.
