The Ralla Kirkdale

Community food garden and plant nursery

A community food garden would allow local people to get involved in volunteer gardening sessions, cultivating organic produce which could be used in the cafe, and which could be used in the warmer months in the preparation of weekly community meals. A similar and very successful activity has been run by Squash Liverpool at their site in L8. Their relatively small community garden has acted as a hub for community engagement for many years and has fostered a great sense of community for the many people which regularly attend. The land at the Ralla, particularly given its scale, presents enormous possibilities, both in terms of community engagement and production of local produce. A plant nursery would provide a complimentary and straightforward source of revenue to the site.
