Practical Design Workshop for Avalon Wildflower Park

When: Monday 18th January, 9.00 – 5pm

Where: Avalon Wildflower Park Opposite the Red Brick Building, Glastonbury

Avalon Wildflower Park is a new community project opposite the Red Brick Building. The former BMX
track, now overgrown, is unloved and neglected. Our vision is to transform it into a haven of native plants, buzzing with life. We want to create a beautiful, fun and ecologically vibrant learning and community space.

This practical design workshop, led by an experienced designer, will be an opportunity to aid the planning & re- design of the area while supporting people to learn new skills. The course will include:

• What is design?
• Mapping techniques & how to create a base map
• Basic practical site surveying skills
• Undertaking client interviews & researching community needs
• Practical ways of surveying plants and vegetation
• A short introduction to how water moves through a landscape

Cost: The course is free for adults in receipt of state benefits, otherwise £10-£50 donation. Bring lunch to share. Booking essential.

This course is financially supported by Somerset Skills & Learning CIC.
