Gaia's Garden

Sparkbrook and Balsall Heath

A new community green space, Gaia's Garden, has launched at the Old Print Works, in Balsall Heath, Birmingham. (May 2016)

Gaia's Garden will provide local residents with a green space to use and enjoy throughout the summer months, promoting sustainability, creativity, and community spirit.

Gaia's Garden will now be open to the public every Saturday from 10am-3pm, where local residents can drop in to check out the space and get their fingers green. The sessions will offer locals the chance to learn new skills regardless of gardening experience, as well as make a positive difference within their community, connect them with new people, and enjoy some fresh air and gentle exercise.

Over the coming weeks, the team of volunteers will work together to build raised beds from up-cycled pallets, plant and grow fruits, vegetables and useful plants, transforming the ex-factory courtyard into a thriving community garden.
The project will culminate with an Autumn harvest, where volunteers will enjoy the fruits of their labour at a feast prepared in The Old Print Works outdoor kitchen using the homegrown, freshly picked produce from Gaia's Garden.
