“If people are empowered to take responsibility for greenspaces like this, it’s not just the gardens that thrive, it’s the communities.”
J.J Chalmers BBC Gardeners World
This growing in your community thing is finally really catching on with a spotlight on community growing in both Beechgrove Garden and Gardeners World this week. The spotlight on The RBGE Edible Garden project beautifully illustrated the social and therapeutic value in people coming together in greenspace with a common purpose. If you were ever in any doubt, listen to Anne tell her story.
