Cathy, Jan and Chris joined local people on Saturday 17th August for an innovative community workshop in Glasgow’s south side.
The event was arranged in two parts: the “practical” workshop looking at a range of important day-to-day issues associated with routes through the area and the “aspirational” workshop with a “design your own garden” exercise.
The outcome of the workshop was a series of models designed by the children: replica high rise blocks along side miniature gardens each making great use of trees, water and pathways to create wonderful spaces for the community. These ideas are being taken forward to the next stage of design; with plans for improved green spaces linked to parkland nearby and creating a focus for the community with a new village green centred around the local train station.
