Cross-community garden project in Northern Ireland comes to fruition
Detail: Protestant and Roman Catholic young people in Londonderry have been planting seeds of peace. Twenty-four green-fingered youths from the Fountain's St Columb's Cathedral Youth Club and the Long Tower Youth Club are now seeing the fruits of their labour as their Wild Flower Garden Project comes into bloom. As part of the cross-community project earlier this year, the Protestant and Catholic participants unveiled a mural in the Foyleside Shopping Centre which took the form of a jigsaw linking specific garden plots. Now micro gardens, which are situated in 12 locations in both the Waterside and cityside areas of Londonderry, feature numerous species of wild flowers.
