This project joined residents with local schools to help reclaim streets and spaces for pedestrians and cyclists while giving people the chance to learn about healthy and active lifestyles and create local growing spaces for the community to enjoy.
The community gardens were planted by children from local schools. The children also designed colourful hexagon-shaped floor tiles that promoted healthy lifestyle messages to encourage more walking, cycling, healthy eating and mindfulness in the town. Richard, Anna and Antonia worked closely with the school children, both in the classroom and on site, to help develop these designs.
The hexagon tiles were exhibited as a small path beside the community garden and were used to create links to the community gardens, allotments, the skatepark and various other facilities around Whitehill & Bordon.
Richard, Antonia, and Anna from Feria Urbanism worked with James and Tina from Urban Place Lab and Richard Wolfströme on this project.
