Livingstone Road Allotments – Livingstone Road Allotments has 107 plots and is a large green space in the middle of Birchfield, the site should and could be a valuable resource for the local community to take pride in but it is currently subject to anti-social behaviour.
This project will utilise a disused building at the entrance to the allotments and work with allotment holders to help create a resource for the local community. This project will collect information, knowledge and stories from the allotment holders which will be presented in a special edition newspaper and DVD. These items along with a new allotment blog and YouTube channel will help the plot-holders connect with other local residents, raise awareness of the allotments, share their knowledge and skills and to increase local pride in the area. I am working with Richard Franks (Creative Producer) and Gavin Ingram (Graphic Designer) of Blue and White Creative on this project.
