Co- working with Cauldwell Children
Over 3 days in November Eco Shed, Pulse cafe and Schools project have been working with the Cauldwell Children organization.
Jess contacted Skillnet Group to see whether it would be possible for us to co - work with children from a disadvantaged background to produce, plan and support a practical project so people would gain team working, practical and planning skills which would help build people’s confidence.
Our first project was a 2 day event to build a planter /banner holder which would go into the garden at the rear of the Pulse cafe. People were supported by members of Eco Shed/ Schools project who already attend these projects on the days to plan, build and buy the compost and plants to finish the project.
The second project was a 1 day Eco Citizens workshop in which 17 people were supported to assemble, paint bird boxes and make tiles for these houses.
People learned about recycling, up-cycling, sustainability and Skillnet Group ethos.
The 4 bird houses would then be donated by Cauldwell Children to Seashells in Sheerness to go in their garden.
