The Greenhouse

Earth Moves started in 2016, walking the dog through some overgrown and abandoned market gardens near Leasowe Beach on the Wirral. We spotted an industrial size greenhouse through the brambles and weeds. Seeing it forlornly out-of-use made us think of the history of the area, and how once it would have provided fresh food for local markets. This led to a conversation about how so many individuals in the UK now rely on food banks, and often don’t have access to fresh fruit and vegetables grown organically.

It was at that moment we came up with the idea for Earth Moves, a community project, based in ‘The Greenhouse’, reviving its historical use and helping people to eat fresh and learn the skills to ‘grow their own’ in a sustainable way. We could provide a space for transformation with our arts, dance and wellbeing projects being situated in our year-round garden greenhouse.

So with permission from the owner Manor Garden Centre, we set about repairing the greenhouse structure, clearing weeds and planting. Inviting different groups from our community to come and help with the work and learn skills while doing so. We have held many workshops over the past few years at ‘The Greenhouse’, based on themes of wellbeing, creativity, ecology, diversity, and community action. Now we’ve outgrown this home, and are working with the local council to get a larger more permanent spot, still in the old market gardens, to help Earth Moves deliver even more projects for local people.

A living,  growing venue that offers well-being, creativity, education and a community. 

We aim to provide a natural environment, all year round for events and meetings.

A better future is possible, this project aims to enrich the community and possibly other communities for years to come. We are providing a sustainable growing community and a spiritual, secular and creative venue. 

Our activities promote cultural diversity, international growing techniques, intergenerational activities, and volunteer opportunities.

Growing food together is a powerful way to feel connected to each other, our ancestors and nature.

Community Growing Space and Venue

In October 2016 we were given the use of a large commercial Greenhouse that was derelict since 2004. We have reanimated the space and ran events from there. 

Sunshine and plants improve wellbeing and there is much scientific research to demonstrate this. many of our volunteers have commented on the well-being effects in the greenhouse.

We have already created a community of like minds. This group are volunteers for the space and freelancers.  We are looking for more people to join us. We have worked with other organizations including Wirral Evolutions, who are an organisation which provides activities for people with learning difficulties.

We have already generated a living, growing venue and sacred space that offers healing, education and a way to serve a  community that grows food,  but also offers personal growth through creativity and meditation. To be truly accessible to others we need funding to renovate the space and make it comfortable for a wide range of people.

We are creating a  green all-weather environment throughout the year for events and meetings.
