NCS: Living wall created at EVH

17 November 2016

Eden Valley Hospice to get a Living Wall

Our latest NCS Cohort were out on the delivery phase of their Social Action Project last Sunday - and what a wonderful project it was!

The students from Carlisle College and Caldew School had heard that a new housing development was in the process of being built adjacent to the gardens at Eden Valley Hospice and they came up with the fantastic idea of assisting with the creation of a 'Living Wall' - to be made out of painted pallets - which will help to shield the view from the Hospice residents.

NCS coordinator John Sander said: "The students made this a really enjoyable task with the way they set about making it happen.

"They hand painted the pallets with their own designs and these will now be put together to create the wall.

"The idea then is that things such as strawberries and herbs will be planted and they will grow up and through the pallets to make it a living wall. We're all looking forward to seeing the end result.

"Everyone at the Hospice was really pleased with the work done at the weekend and the students came away knowing they had done something very special."
