Rewilding, vending style

I had a double take today when I spotted this twin drawer, Locwil vending machine right on the seafront;

‘Grow Feral’ Vendor

Unfortunately it really is RIGHT on the seafront, within the splash zone at high tide and the storm shutters on the café next door tell you a lot about the behaviour of the sea in this area! I can see some rust already which is a shame, unfortunately these more recent machines have very thin, ungalvanised metal and the drawers are cast but not chromed. It’s a great idea, but I do hope it lasts in such an exposed, public area.

Update 9/2022 – this machine is now completely gone, and the only other one I have found has sadly, but maybe predictably, been vandalised with drawers jammed half open 🙁
