Love Parks Awards (Diversity category) – March 2016

Our Managing Partners secured a Highly Commended award in the Diversity category of the Love Parks Awards 2016 for work at Liverpool Festival Gardens.

The Love Parks Awards celebrate groups that improve and protect green spaces. The award for diversity recognises groups that embrace the whole community and give a voice to multiple generations, ethnic minorities, those who are unemployed and ex-offenders.

At Liverpool Festival Gardens – owned by Liverpool City Council and managed on its behalf by the Land Trust in partnership with TCV – those who are unemployed can complete a month-long work experience placement with TCV to bolster their skills and experience in horticulture, the environment, construction and computers. TCV also collaborates with Merseyside probation to deliver community rehab once a week.

A wide diversity of age and ethnic groups volunteer for the gardens. TCV engages with local schools and colleges, where field trip students conduct activities such as habitat surveys, pond dipping, seed bombing, habitat management, small mammal trapping, habitat conservation and horticulture.
