Home Page > Save The Green Backyard


Help us raise the money required to buy the land we’re on and save it from destruction.
We aim to buy the 2.3 acre allotment site that The Green Backyard is located on to prevent the land being sold off to a developer. This would force the closure or relocation of the project, destroy 6 years hard work by thousands of local people and remove one of the very last green spaces from the city centre area. Instead, after buying the site we will seek to develop it into a thriving urban garden with a local food cafe, education centre and enterprise incubation units.
