Unexpected Garden: Leven

A tarmacked car park in front of a hedge line, brick wall and houses

About

Vertical growing, upcycled railway parts and interactive elements will give a new lease of life to the car park of Leven Community Centre, creating a market garden inspired by the planned reopening of the Leven railway line. Celebrating this development, long hoped for by the community, the garden reimagines the railway in miniature scale. Leven residents have driven the whole concept, a result of a close collaboration between The Leven Programme and its community. The garden incorporates sensory elements to immerse visitors in a fun, surprising environment, with the concrete surrounds of the car park transformed into a thriving, above ground construction filled with edible plants. Beautiful but functional too, the garden will include a stage and seating area for performances, growing and cooking classes, arts activities, climate and sustainability workshops, intergenerational activities and more. Explore, unwind, socialise, learn new things and help to grow food for the community. This is not your ordinary car park!
