Sustainability: A healthy heart to the city

How can we make a healthier natural environment & develop greener solutions for future of Coney Street?
Thursday 9th June 2022, 2pm - 4pm King's Manor
A small garden with flowers and small plants is flanked by stone flagged paths.


Did you know that Coney Street used to have green spaces?

Using original maps from the archives, participants of this workshops will be introduced to Coney Street's previous greenery.

We'll explore ideas for reclaiming public spaces, such as by turning 'scrubland' at the back of buildings into secret gardens or lunchtime areas. We'll also consider the ways street-facing greenery could be introduced - window boxes and vertical planting, perhaps - and how the management of litter and shop waste can help enhance green spaces. Included is a visit to the street to bring the research to life.

This workshop is part of the StreetLife Project, working in conjunction with York Civic Trust. The StreetLife project is funded by the UK Government through the UK Community Renewal Fund.
