Green House

The photos show the building of a plastic bottle greenhouse at the Livesey Museum for Children in London. We build the greenhouse with Sustainable Communities from Scotland. It was a great project - making a greenhouse for children to grow vegetables in, right in the centre of London, is about as educational as you can get.

The adults built the frame, but the children filled the construction with the hundreds of plastic bottles. They were amazingly productive, enthusiastic and happy while helping building the green house. Everybody got involved, including staff from the museum, people from the local arts centre and teachers and classroom assistants. It was a joy to see everyone adding to this massive work of art.
