Work carried out in the Westburn Woods by a team of local gardeners is now complete making an overgrown, litter filled woodland a pleasant area for the local community.
The two day event, which had taken place today Monday 15 August 2016 and the previous Friday, was organised by WHALE Arts’ Westburn CAN project and Prospect Community Housing. The team had been asked by local people to help spruce up the area after it had been used for fly tipping and allowed to become overgrown.
The team worked really hard and its clear to see the difference they have made in these photos comparing the before and after:
The team now have plans to create a sculpture using some of the litter they have found clearing the woods and hope to turn an eyesore into art for the new WHALE Arts Horticulture Hub, located at the back of the WHALE.
If you would like to learn more about gardening or are looking for a new hobby then head along to Westburn CAN’s regular gardening hubs at the WHALE Arts Centre, Mondays and Fridays, 10.30am – 2.30pm.
Here are some of our photos of the team hard at work!
