The Playhouse Artitude Climate, Culture & Circularity Project are building a Community Garden.
The project will transform a currently disused outdoor courtyard space at The Playhouse in the heart of Derry-Londonderry city centre, into a zero-waste community herb, vegetable, wildflower and sensory garden. Developed in conjunction with local community groups, including Lilliput Theatre Company for adults with learning disabilities, the project is also shaping the new community garden as a research space for urban ecology and rewilding.
Using zero waste principles, project partners aim to use the site as a space for practical, creative workshops about the circular economy, carbon reduction, and climate action. An urban oasis for growing and re-wilding, the garden will be integrated into a number of programmes for the purposes.
