Usk Way community garden in Smith's Wood is one of 165 spaces across the country that are being improved thanks to match funding from the national Britvic 'Transform Your Patch' scheme www.transformyourpatch.com. The Partnership appointed Groundwork West Midlands who have been working with local residents to develop the plan for improving the space.  

Proposals included improving the large concrete planter in the centre of the garden by introducing new planting, which is overlooked by benches, new raised beds for residents to grow their own veg, and new trees to provide interest and areas of shade as they grow.  A community volunteering day in the garden took place on Saturday, 22nd September 2012.  Click here to view the results of the completed garden!
