A greener space for a sunnier season.
As much as we often talk about sustainability and greening on this blog, sometimes it’s literal. In a post last year we talked about how we’d revamped the courtyard at the centre of the building, re-using the old BAC sign cubes and planting a range of trees, flowers and shrubs.
As the weather starts to perk up, it’s nice to see that our faith is being rewarded. A couple of months ago we enjoyed tulips and daffs, and now the pear tree (bargain at £12) and clematis’ (50p each!) have been flowering too.
With early signs from the seedlings for mixed bee-friendly flora coming up as well, it looks like we might have a rather cosy and colourful wee nook in which to eat lunch during the day and relax with a drink in the evenings.
But we’re keeping the large red table-umbrellas handy just in case – it’s still England, after all.
If you’re in the building, the courtyard is open for public use, and you’re very welcome to bring your food and drink from the Scratch Bar out and enjoy it in a little bit of space away from the main road.
If you’re of the green-fingered persuasion and would like to volunteer any help in keeping our courtyard garden growing, we’d love to hear from you. You can contact our Volunteer Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
