On a piece of semi-derelict brownfield land next to Rotunda Community College, BCA Landscape designed a new campus to further the college’s objectives of providing training and qualifications for garden volunteers, improving community links, enabling wheelchair access and incorporating a kitchen garden to link with the college’s café. Through the garden, the project promotes the idea of growing and eating fruit and vegetables. With a modest initial budget, BCA Landscape worked closely with the client to tap in to additional funding from a cocktail of sources.

The scheme has directly regenerated a forgotten and derelict area of land, while also continuing and enhancing outreach to the local community. It puts environmental education at the heart of the approach, while the extensive planting of floral, scented flowers will attract pollinators that will kick-start a mini ecosystem.
