The Bartlett School of Sustainable Construction


C&PM students volunteer at Burgess Park Food Project

11 April 2014


A team of enthusiastic first year undergraduate students from The Bartlett School of Construction and Project Management took part in a voluntary building project for the Burgess Park Food Project, an initiative that aims to get people growing locally and sustainably in north Peckham.

The team which was led by Richard Hind, Teaching Fellow in Materials and Built Asset Management, spent the day preparing the foundation for a new log cabin in Glengall Wharf Garden, a new community space at the top of Surrey Canal Walk.

The multi-use cabin will act as a classroom, a small library, an information centre, as well as shelter from the bad weather. In the coming weeks the cabin’s foundation will be built upon by other volunteers, adding a green roof, insulation, off-grid power and storage for all the essentials.

The project is always in need of volunteers; find out more about how you can get involved on the Burgess Park Food Project website: http://burgessparkfoodproject.org.uk/
