Case Study: Our Garden (Brit Growers)

English
Brit Growers

A lively community site in Evanstown near Bridgend, the aptly named ‘Our Garden’ has a wide mix of users from across the Ogmore Valley, and is used daily by local people who go to tend their plot or to simply sit and chat with friends and neighbours.

The growing activities take place on former disused waste ground, which had once been used for housing until they were demolished some years ago. The sites were cleared and landscaped and now form the heart of the community.

The group behind this transformation is called Brit Growers, who approached housing association Valleys To Coast Housing about finding some land for community use and were offered the disused sites.
