During 2020 ten community organisations working with Ashton co-designed a solution for the large number of problematic and wasted sites in North Belfast. The strategy will bring these sites into use and link them into a ‘grid’ of spaces under a common land management organisation as a social enterprise plant nursery. This Garden Grid will form a resilient network to tackle space and transition neighbourhoods.
The Plant Nursery will use ‘pop-up’ container and mobile planting techniques to allow the wide variety of sites to be adapted quickly with minimal capital. A head gardener leads a team of trainees to make productive use of the spaces and work with residents on issues of health and well-being, street safety and food growing initiatives.
