Client Shoulder to Soldier Community Allotment
Products used VersiWall™ GP - 11m² green living wall
 
 

Context

Hy-Tex donated 11m2 of VersiWall® GP green living wall to the armed forces charity, Shoulder to Soldier.

The VersiWall® vertical garden wall enabled disabled veterans at the charity's communal allotment to participate in the garden more. Previously disabled veterans were unable to 'get stuck in' at the allotment, as their restricted mobility made it difficult to work at low levels.

Outcome

Peter, a member of the charity and an amputee, praised the product for its uniqueness.

''I was so overwhelmed when Dot-Pot offered us this product, it will allow me to contribute to the allotment rather than just watching the other lads do all the work!. As the product is so simple to use and can be at a height ideal for me, it means I can do my planting of the pots in the shed and then transfer them onto the wall all on my own without hurting myself. It's an amazing feeling to know I can do something independently when it comes to gardening; it will improve my mental health and general wellbeing significantly as I will now be able to work just as hard as the others.''

ITV regional news also paid a visit to the allotment on the same day to highlight the charity's great work in the community.
