Biophilic community garden flowers in Glasgow

A community garden providing 56 raised planters for growing herbs, fruits and vegetables has opened on Glasgow's High Street.

Greyfriars Biophilic Community Garden has taken root on brownfield land in a partnership between the city council and local community groups, transforming leftover ground between the St Mungo mural and Barony Hall into a growing opportunity.

Veronica Low, chair of the Greyfriars Biophilic Community Garden, said: “We worked with the council to develop what has become many things - a sensory garden, and a space to relax, meet your friends and grow. We are also looking to collaborate with other gardens, such as the one at the Provand’s Lordship and the doctor’s garden at the Royal Infirmary."

The growing space replaces Greyfriars Garden, planted in 2012 under the council's Stalled Places programme.

Hopefully, this will be the last time ever I'll see the use of the word, 'biophilic'. It's a bloody awful word, wholly disassociated from what it is describing.
Must try harder.
