Now in its final year, the Our Green Space project has enabled five communities in Asby, Barrow-in-Furness, Burgh by Sands, Newbiggin (Penrith) and Wasdale to undertake a mixture of physical improvements, as well as education and celebratory events centred around their local green spaces. It also provided training and resources to many other communities across the county about how to protect and care for their town and village greens. The Our Green Space Case Studies book highlights the key issues the groups faced in their quest to restore, protect, develop and enjoy their local green spaces. It captures many of the achievements made and provides tips and information for anyone wanting to undertake similar work in their community.
