SAW Garden Design

Over the past few years we have been flourishing the SAW garden together as a community, with the fantastic work of Shieldfield Grows. SAW has now successfully received funding in order to further develop the rest of the space in our back garden as a further embodiment of our core values. A space for hospitality, enquiry and activism, where we can continue to flourish our community together.

Our garden designer, Mike Hunter, is keen to meet the people who will use the garden and get an idea of all of the communities that we are involved with at SAW to inform his garden design. Therefore, we are holding 3 workshops to gather your voices, thoughts and ideas. We would love for you to be part of one of these workshops, to have your say.

During the workshops you will have a chance to meet Mike, to say what you want from this garden space, to create a model of your ideas and to hear about how you can get involved in the garden build going forward. The workshops will take place on:

Wed 26th, 5.30-7pm – in person at SAW
Thur 27th, 2-3.30pm – in person at SAW
Thur 27th, 5.30-6.30pm – on Zoom
