The project has also been awarded additional funding from the Mayor of London’s Greener City scheme, allowing enhanced planting and community gardening activities.
The project traces the boundary lines of houses that were formerly on the site, using lines of lavender, and creating spaces between the lines for wild flowers or opportunities for community planting.
The history of the site, the houses and previous residents will be researched with local residents and interpreted in the landscape on metal plaques.
Making Places is a unique £1m arts and cultural programme, funded by Waltham Forest Council, aiming to revitalise the borough with artwork and cultural interventions, which will have an impact on local communities and surrounding neighbourhoods. The Making Places project is delivered in partnership with Create London.
