Community Garden Creative Work

Neil has been working with DEAP (Dundee Employment and Aftercare Project) with young people aged 16-25 years.

The group are working with artist Lauren Herd to develop creative pieces for the planned community garden space at Robertson Street.

All of the work developed is based on the identified interests of the young people and the group have explored the issue of food sustainability in a fun and accessible way. They have been carving and printing with potatoes while reflecting on the fact that 52% of the vegetable grown in the UK is used by fish and chip shops!

Community Garden Creative Work

How our food is sourced and used has been a key theme of the programme.

The young people have tried their hand at making smoothies using a combination of fruit from different countries. You can imagine that they came up with some unlikely tasting flavours!

They have made origami paper planters from scrap paper and followed up by planting seeds for flowers and vegetables destined to thrive at Robertson Street garden.
