Winter at Six Brixton

We are currently going into winter but that does not mean we are stopping by any means. This week we have been collecting leaves for Leaf mulsh in our big metal tanks. This will be used for composting purposes at the Secret Nature Garden next year.
Also local resident Carlos came to us for help in re housing his dog and desperately need a house. Luckily for him, Junior from JNR services dropped one off the day before and it was great to create something which was destined for landfill.
Thanks to Junior and the team for their support for this project. If you would like waste cleared give him a call on 07916461340

From Soweto to Six Brixton

We started work today finishing the artwork on hubcaps designed by our friends in Orlando, Soweto last week. First we designed the patterns to go round the hubcaps and cut them out of plywood. We then added some paint and decorated them with markers. Thanks to our good friends at Block Workout too for keeping us inspired through their dedication to fitness and well being. Go check them out on Youtube.
