Imagine living on the 33rd floor of a block of flats. No balcony. No outside space.
Imagine living in a tiny maisonette. No garden. No outside space.
Imagine sharing rented accomodation. No garden access as all paved for easy maintenance by landlord. No outside space.
Imagine all these scenarios and more..........
Gardening in the Urban Landscape just isn't as simple as opening your back door and going outside to your space.
Add into any of the above scenarios children, jobs, time poverty, financial poverty, isolation......
Suddenly it seems impossible to interact with the outdoors let alone actually go outside and grow something.
And this is where the term Urban Gardening arrives. Urban Gardening gives all the people affected by the above, the ability to get out and garden. To interact with the earth and take control of their health by growing food, growing flowers for their inner city spaces, and teaching their children about the seasons and the earth.
Because "Gardening makes Communities"
