Impact Arts Flourish at the Gardening Show

Thu 30th May 2013

Impact Arts is
delighted to be involved in the Gardening Scotland show this Friday the 31st of May. Gardening Scotland is
Scotland’s National Celebration of Gardening and Outdoor Living.

Arts will be showcasing our Urban Green project, a community green space
programme designed to transform run down or under-used green spaces through
community engagement and creative landscaping. Organisations such as Housing
Associations commission the Urban Green team to rejuvenate dissuade spaces.
Communities work with our talented landscape artist to transform areas of
neglect into something beautiful and usable. Urban Green also offers a garden
maintenance and landscaping service for private clients so please pop by the
stand and see what the team have to offer!

Tomson, Landscape Gardner, Impact Arts said:

Green is a brilliant project that can enthuse a community and make gardening
accessible to everyone. We’ve worked to transform disused spaces in
some of the most deprived areas in Glasgow and Ayrshire, giving the community a
task to work together on and a chance to restore pride in their surroundings.
The project is really flexible, and has been commissioned as an employability
experience for people with additional learning needs. But we also offer the
service to private clients who need landscaping work or general maintenance at
an affordable price – and as a social enterprise, all of the profits go back
into helping us fulfil our social mission.”
