Group 24

This project will look at designing a biodiverse, community lead, gardening and growing space for the Burnside Centre, a charity with community at its core. The design will occupy a narrow space adjacent to the building, and will require creative problem solving to use vertical design to create a space where biodiversity, fruit and vegetables will thrive to show sustainable living! This project has already secured funding so our designs will potentially become reality and play a part in supporting the natural world and the Middleton Community!
