The Hanging Gardens of Lillington project has engaged young people to transform the outdoor areas of Lillington Youth Club from a drab concrete walk-through into a bright and productive space for growing organic food.
Through empowering the young people, the project is also helping them to develop new interests and skills in DIY, horticulture and nutrition.
ARC’s Matt Cox is the project leader working in partnership with Gary Timlin and the young people at the Youth Centre. Speaking to Matt about the need for the project he said “Vibrant green spaces are suitable for socialising and relaxation. This outside area will be used for the important mentoring and support services which operate at the youth centre.”
This project has been funded by the North Leamington Community Forum and Leamington Town Council.
