About the living wall

The Metroline living wall is a unique convergence of nature, technology, recycling, education and wellbeing for humans and bugs alike.

It is our belief that the Living Wall will become an area of great benefit to the local community in many ways. 

We place a special emphasis on the carers of people with ADHD, Dementia and simular conditions. The sections of the wall will create a quiet and safe placefor these people to spend some relaxing time outdoors, as well as providing the opportunity to chatting with people who want to meet other locals and enjoy chatting listening to some music performances from the stage. We hope this one wall will encourage people who might not normally venture out much, to view it as a a safe place to come and relax - Enjoying life is important! 


  • It will also provide an environment for learning and teaching, offering peaceful places for everyone to benefit from. 
  • Technology will be used to help the natural park habitat and to spark interest for younger people.
  • Utilising the naturally occurring water from the wall will help to achieve our goal of providing free drinking water for all the community.
  • It is also planned to encourage a number of green environmental projects, which bring communities together and will improve the local environment for everyone.

Examples of recycling projects

  • Recycling is an important part of creating tomorrow’s parks today, and it is our aim to ensure that, wherever possible, we will be:  
  • Recycling water.  
  • Harnessing solar power where possible.

We are hoping this project will be followed by a local announcement that will improve our health and area in ways that will be secured for at least the next 50 years (cryptic but exciting!)

When the living wall was first mooted it was interesting to hear the different interpretations that people had of what a living was, is or should be.

Imagination was the first item to influence the different ideas that were thrown into the hat for discussion, with location, which brought forward some interesting thoughts, being a major second factor.

Life experiences also became a strong element and, of course, nature was always a major element to consider

The plans became quite different when the fabric of life started to work.

Enthusiasm, commitment, and help started to join up the dots and amazing things began to happen.



Thank you
Without our amazing volunteers, everything would be a lot slower and lack the amazing imagination that's been included in every section.
