Roundfield were invited to design and implement an Edible Garden project at the Avery Hill Campus of the University of Greenwich. We worked with the sustainability team, volunteer employees and students to co-design, build and plant the garden in three phases. The first phase included extensive allotment style planting beds, a community composting area, a covered seating area, a coppice shelterbelt, and the initial structure planting for the forest garden (the trees!). In phase 2 we planted the rest of the forest garden with hundreds of bush fruit and groundcover herbs. The final phase was the creation of a large wildlife pond and decked seating area.
Community landscape projects like this are so rewarding as we get to share knowledge and experiences with so many volunteers.
