Model – Greening the burbs by growing in bags!

Posted in Models, Visions by fedwards on April 22nd, 2008

Check out this project called, VACANT LOT, started in May 2007 with support from the Shoreditch Trust, Arts Council Groundwork East London. What-if: projects together with local residents of an inner city housing estate in Shoreditch have come up with a novel solution: GROW YOUR GREENS IN A BAG.

A formerly inaccessible and run-down plot of housing estate land has been transformed into a beautiful oasis of green. Seventy 1/2 tonne bags of soil have been arranged to form an allotment space. Within their individual plots, local residents are carefully tending a spectacular array of vegetables, salads, fruit and flowers. A new sense of community has emerged.
