BHA

Berwickshire Housing Association, which has two very different sites in Eyemouth and Ayton.

The first is an eco-development on a five acre open site in nearby Ayton. This land is set aside for future dwelling construction but parts of the land are available to develop for community growing and the project to show how exposed areas can be improved through planting of trees and other plants to create a more sheltered site. Participants will have the chance to study with leading practitioner and Abundant Borders partner, Graham Bell.

The second is a sheltered housing complex with an area for growing which was previously well used by residents but which is now neglected. Growing food and involving young people will be part of the restoration mix. Recreating a pleasant outdoor living space and offering gentle exercise are the final outcomes.
