The Garnethill Climate Action Group aims to improve air quality by community planting of hedgerows throughout our urban area. A founding member’s research identified the efficacy of hedgerows in capturing and converting toxic emissions. This Spring we will plant hedgerow saplings on key points in Garnethill. We will also prepare the ground for another round of planting at the end of the year. Planting events will involve people of all ages and abilities from our local community and the hill’s enthusiastic educational, arts, cultural and environmental groups and establishments. In addition we will research and experiment with other green initiatives for improving air quality, e.g. moss walls.
