Catch up with a video of our visit to the Share Shack project and City Farm in Balsall Heath, hosted by our friends at The Active Wellbeing Society:
Update: Footsteps’ volunteer Toqueer has also recorded some reflections on visiting the Share Shack and how his Muslim faith leads him to care for the environment:
Balsall Heath Share Shack (based at Balsall Heath City Farm) is part of “a series of community spaces for residents to connect with each other by borrowing, repairing, re-using and being creative! Share Shacks aim to strengthen relationships in communities, reduce waste, encourage people to share skills, borrow free tools and equipment, and learn something new.”
Balsall Heath City Farm is “an urban oasis in the heart of inner-city Birmingham with 50 animals and attractive planting.”
Share Shack is delivered in partnership by St Pauls Trust and The Active Wellbeing Society on behalf of Active Communities Programme which is funded through Sport England and the Lottery.
