Turn a derelict eyesore into a pleasant small garden, growing fruit bushes and herbs for all to use.
The derelict bank and street beside Pioneer House (behind The Timepiece) is an unpleasant space in our town which is overgrown and collects rubbish and worse.
Volunteers can clear and develop this area into a pleasant garden next to a classic cobbled street. The terraced garden would grow fruit bushes and herbs which can be harvested by residents. People can stop and appreciate a small transformed green space in the town centre.
What we'll do:
- Clear the derelict area of rubbish and undergrowth
- Clean and repair the cobbled area.
- Terrace the bank, turn the ground and fill up with top soil.
- Supply and plant fruit bushes and herbs.
- Install a wind break at the top of the bank.
- Continue to maintain the area by voluntary action.
Why it's a great idea:
The location is right next to Pioneer House which is being restored and will become a popular attraction. This small rejuvenated spot will become much more public and no longer detract from the improvements nearby.
It will be a community developed and maintained space which makes a statement about our concern for our town.
How we'll get it done:
- Regular volunteer working parties.
