CONSISTENTLY CURIOUS (2022-2025)
During discussions at LeftCoast’s Supper Clubs in both Mereside and Hawes Side, residents have expressed an interest in growing their own produce, reusing materials, and making positive contributions to the wider community. There have also been lots of conversations about health, both physical and wellbeing related.
The larders will be a way to start conversations on how communities can mobilise their own circular economy activities amid the cost-of-living crisis. Work together to redistribute surplus and come together to support each other.
Blackpool’s Director of Public Health Dr Arif Rajpura has supported the project through Public Health funding. Blackpool Coastal Housing have also supported the project through their environmental fund. LeftCoast hope to partner with UCLan and Myerscough college to landscape the community garden behind the larder and collaboratively plan the planting with residents.
