Greyfriars Community Garden
Greyfriars Community Garden is located on a derelict piece of land in the very heart of Glasgow city centre, surrounded by building works. Glasgow City Council and Merchant City Community Council contracted ERZ to design an oasis within this urban area for local users to grow vegetables.
The scheme includes rainwater harvesting, a communal shelter, large storage units, composting facilities and a range of growing spaces. A small lawn and picnic area enables play and informal use. Habitat value was significantly improved through the inclusion of a large area of new meadow planting.
