All the waste wood within the workshop is collected from social landlord properties

Croxteth Home Farm in Liverpool has opened a craft workshop which turns unwanted wood and timber into new products.

Broken furniture, old doors and door frames from registered social landlord properties are transformed into home and garden ornaments, bric-a-brac and cattle and pig sheds as part of the new scheme.

Work is carried out partly by adults with learning difficulties with the end products available to buy in the Craft Shop at the farm.

The project is managed by Neighbourhood Services Company (NSC) and has been awarded £18,408 from the Merseyside Recycling & Waste Authority and Veolia Community Fund 2017/18.

Lisa Jennions, NSC manager, said: “The project is extremely popular with visitors and the garden ornaments are flying out of the craft shop; it’s great to see new life breathed into what was previously ‘waste’ wood.

“We would like to encourage visitors to come and pay us a visit and see the wonderful things that can be done with waste materials.”
