The need for more urban green spaces
We spoke to the lovely @hafsahhafeji a Horticulturalist based in Leicester about the importance of more urban green spaces here in the UK.
Green spaces can create barriers to equal access when they do not consider marginalised groups or the different uses of that space by various communities. We share Hafsah’s belief in the importance of designing urban green spaces together, with the community at the centre.
This means engaging with the whole community with meaningful intention and listening to what the members of that community really need from these spaces.
