Grow Blackpool is a Groundwork Cheshire, Lancashire and Merseyside project which engages local people in the production of their own food. The group asked us to make them an Apple Shelter & gate for a quiet area within the the allotment site.
This is the kind of project we started Handspring with almost 17 years ago. Our original aim was to develop a business that produced beautiful sustainable products that enhance peoples lives and the local environment by combining good design with locally sourced materials. To this day we do not import wood from outside Europe and still mostly work within the public realm.
We wish Grow Blackpool all the best and a long and fruitful future
