Plant a Place

… some photos from last weekend’s pop-up garden!

It was great to have lots of passers-by taking advantage of a little greenspace in the city centre. Stopping to pick up some of the free seeds we were giving away, sitting with a delicious pulled pork sandwich from our neighbouring stand… or just popping in for a quick gardening chat, it was great to meet you and hear about your urban gardening escapades!

But best of all was planting herbs in recycled tin cans with the kids that visited our garden. Its great to think they know now just how easy it is to make their own little greenspaces whether on a doorstep, window sill or patio space.

This pop-up project focused around the importance of urban greenspace, and showed that you don’t even need to lift the slabs to create a spot of nature and tranquility – the bees took about half an hour to find our flowers, which just goes to show – you bring the plants and the rest comes to you!
