Urban Garden at The Joseph Wright Centre

Students at Derby College Group’s Joseph Wright post 16 Academic and Arts college in the Cathedral Quarter have created an urban garden for staff and students to enjoy.

The balcony space has been transformed with synthetic grass, patio planters and benches using recycled pallets donated by local company DW Hicks.
Head of JWC Stacey Adams said: “The urban garden has been created as part of our enrichment programme where students have the opportunity to join a wide range of activities that develop their personal and team building skills.
“It is a simple but highly effective concept and is already being enjoyed by our staff and students.”
