The Good Food Matters Food Learning Centre is an inspirational organisation dedicated to supporting those who, for a variety of reasons, face lack of achievement at school; may be excluded; in care; leaving care; young carers; teenage mothers; young homeless; ex-offenders or at risk from antisocial behaviour; as well as children and young people with learning disabilities.
The design intent for the project was to create growing areas where participants can experience first-hand and under the guidance of experts, the process of planting, tending and harvesting their own food.
The 137,65m2 timber frame structure is oriented to optimise natural daylight and ventilation as well as capitalising on renewable energy by means solar PV panels. In addition, the siting and arrangement of the building and its surrounds are significantly driven by the need to make the steeply sloping site as wheelchair accessible as possible.
During the construction stage over 400 volunteers assisted in the construction of the growing area of the site - many of whom were young offenders who worked brilliantly with corporate volunteers from local businesses.
