Green roots for Hemsworth building scheme

Wakefield Council has launched a temporary scheme to turn empty land in the Hemsworth area into a wild meadow. Old derelict houses have been demolished in areas of the West End estate and the cleared area will offer a chance for local school children to learn about horticulture.

Youngsters, with the help of a heavy horse called Big Lad, will also learn traditional methods of seed sowing and planting flower seeds as part of a landscaping plan for the area.

The Council, working with Green Estate Ltd, decided to create something the local community could enjoy and take ownership of rather than leave the land untended.

The land will eventually be developed as work continues to move forward on the overall regeneration and building scheme.
