A Little Patch of Ground in Stonehouse

Images from A Little Patch of Ground Stonehouse performance event which was the culmination of 4 months work with 5 different community growing spaces all radically different in scale, to celebrate their stories and journeys and strengthen the connections between growers in this part of the city.  The performance tour last sunday which lasted just over 2 hours took a capacity audience around the 5 spaces on foot, tasting, listening, drawing, sharing stories, playing, imagining and dreaming. The tour took in street planters that have been lovingly tended over many years by one resident; imaginative new designs for an urban gap site run by a voluntary community project; a fledgeling food growing project in a homeless hostel tended by many hands; a thriving huerta in a walled garden behind a low rise and a mature urban ‘village green’ space and orchard sheltered by the 500 year old city walls.  The local community performers were hugely generous in their energy and commitment.IMG_2872 IMG_2954 IMG_2866 sunsm stringsm soupticksm1
