Unexpected Garden: The Drying Green, Greenock

A grassy hilly verge next to a building

About

RIG Arts are transforming a space behind South West Library in Greenock. From an unused scrub site, The Drying Green will become a shared space for nurturing plants and stories. Named after the communal laundry areas shared by tenement buildings throughout Scotland – the places where communities grew close through games, leisure and shared childcare. Instead of clothes pegs and washing lines, watch tendrils and vines unfurl next to new public sculptures, and a community created mosaic. This is a plot for people to grow their own produce and swap ideas, a story-growing garden hosting special events and community activities open to everyone.
