Looking forward to see how this turns out, its a lovely site near the city centre and also the Kirkstall nature reserve and I hope it forms a useful and used part of the green corridor

Hi, I work in the area and previously a resident of the area and think this is a great idea. Sadly I now live further away but, hoping to lend a hand when I can and hopefully learn something to apply in my own garden. Regards, Dean
