Guerrilla vegetable gardening
Our Green Superheroes: Jeannie and Eddie!
There was some space at the side of
Jeannie's building which had not been used for years, so she asked
her Neighbourhood Housing Officer if she could plant some bulbs
Another resident, Eddie, also noticed,
and together they planted some salad and chard then other residents
asked to get involved, and the SALAD project was born.
Over the last year the residents have planted
potatoes, runner beans, French beans, and some herbs. An old
dustbin was turned into a water butt by a resident, and there is
now a composter for food waste. The residents are already
planning ahead for next year's growing season!
