The Navvies Garden with Salford Loaves and Fishes
The Navvies Garden has been co-created by artist Matt Rosier and local charity Salford Loaves & Fishes, it’s trees and plants embody elements of the navvy experience, and its seasonal produce will be given to local foodbanks. Food poverty was a key driver in Irish migration in the navvy period, and the community group felt it important to address this through the garden. The digging of this garden by community participants was the basis for the Light Waves festival installation and projection into the canal.
Come and meet members of the local community and learn about the garden and the Navvies project as well as helping us create a positivity wall for our Drop-in centre. Everybody welcome, pop in and say hello.
