Case Studies & Films

Being brought to a site you haven’t been to before and talking to people in the same boat as you really opens up your eyes to what’s possible. Whether it’s how they manage fishing ponds or how they went about putting in a community orchard …it all adds not just to capacity but inspiration and motivation to turning around a site from a community problem to a community asset to be proud of.

Until Friends of Possilpark Greenspace introduced me to the Claypits, I hadn’t realised that it was there, even though it’s right on my doorstep. I now use the space an awful lot for giving me ‘headspace’ and an escape.
