Supporting local community projects...
We at Empire are supporting a fantastic local community project – Paradise Co-Op. They have set up community farm on land kindly provided by Wandsworth Prison and are busy bringing this forgotten piece of land back into use.
The farm includes a few pigs, a large natural pond, beehives and a series of raised beds which we built in association with Hitchcock & King who donated the railway sleepers – all 90 of them! They are also running an educational program with a local school which they are hoping to roll out more widely.
We have helped to build the external fencing, picked up piglets in our truck joined the clearance team and continue to look for opportunities to help the farm develop.
