Fed up with looking at an empty open space outside their tower blocks in Salford, a group of tenants decided to set up their own community garden. Now, three years later, the garden is thriving with a traditional fruit and nut orchard, a wildflower meadow and a native woodland, as well as allotments growing organic vegetables. Not only has the garden produced cheap fruit and vegetables for local residents, it has also provided a social space. It has proved so successful that loads of projects have been inspired by it, including a school tree growing project.
