Greening South Street

After taking part in Transition Streets residents in South Street have created communal planters for herbs, flowers and wildlife.

Despite Covid, members of South Street got together to work through the Transition Streets topics on Zoom and meeting in their gardens.

Tabitha said: "The Transition Streets handbook was a wonderful resource for our slow and steady plans to reduce our environmental impact. We really enjoyed meeting in each other’s gardens and sharing information and ideas about green living and local projects.

Following the programme members of the group are greening up their street with Transition Street's sister project, Incredible Edible Totnes

Residents have installed planters and have begun creating a ‘living wall’ against the back of a plain brick wall of a local shop that backs onto the street. The planting containers are made of 100% recycled plastic and they have been filled with herbs for the community and flowering plants for insects.
