The 'Base' Summerhill Youth Project
Over 10 years, Summerhill Community Centre volunteers have worked hard to develop and maintain a unique community land art. The group has introduced new learning opportunities, skills and significantly improved the local area. From unused land, it has designed community ideas, created an amazing land art with hills and a snake path; ponds; trees; flowers; shrubs; raising awareness about rainforest issues. The group facilitated rural taster sessions in wood carving, stone carving, planting, pond dipping and built its own impressive drystone wall; designed themed gates and delivered awareness workshops influenced by the group’s slogan – ‘Think Global – Act Local’.
