Gardening, biodiversity, organics, these are great for people with large amounts of space in the countryside but not possible for urban city dwellers, right? Wrong. The urban garden at CAT shows how with limited space and no access to beds you can still grow your own food, encourage bird and insect life and have a beautiful green space. Something that is all the more important when living in cramped built up environments.
Salds can be grown in pots, care tires provide the perfect compost system, old toilets and sinks are recyled into quirky and attractive planters and mini ponds.
