The Bentley ‘Growing Great’ Pocket Park

Creation of a pocket park in Bentley, Walsall. The project will provide residents with a green space to enjoy and the opportunity to garden and grow fruit & vegetables.

The pocket park will include wildflower areas, raised beds to grow herbs and vegetables. Biodiversity will be encouraged through the inclusion of log piles, hedgehog homes, bird & bat boxes and solitary bee houses.

We spoke with Diana Southall, Community Development Officer and Social Connector, about the group's successful application and to find out more about what the money will be used for.
