3 July 2019: Lots of building!!

This was a big day! I assembled five benches (no small feat for me) and Catherine and I built (or just about built) a raised bed. The materials for the raised bed came from Glasgow Wood Recycling – a fantastic enterprise. Also purchased some used whisky barrels for raised beds! They look fantastic.

18 June 2019 – Checking out Baltic Street Gardens!

Today me and Catherine went to Baltic Street Gardens, an amazing child-run community space. This is where Helen Trail (a post-doc from the University of Glasgow) researches. The site was set up by two brothers, and I met one of them. The outdoor centre also acts as a local food hub for the community in the East End of Glasgow. I really liked the raised beds! And there were chickens too. The kids seemed to be really enjoying using the space and feeling free.
