Cre8 Garden 6

18.06.2005

On Sunday the 12th of June the Cre8 Summit began. An inspiring local project set up in response both to the approved building of the new M74 northern extension and the G8 summit to be held in July 2005.

Between 11th June and Saturday 18th of June we are be creating a community garden on a piece of wasteland along the propsed route of the M74 motorway extension which will cut through 2 communites and cause massive congestion and contamination. (for more info see http://www.jam74.org ) There is a social space with workshops, with food provided and plenty of chances to get stuck in. Celebration with a party on 18th June. After that, there will be a family festival between 29th June and 3rd July. Your skills/help/plants/gas-parafin lamps/arts materials are more than welcome and needed.

Work has already begun amongst a plethra of interest from residents and media. The week long gardening project will culminate in a Festival on Saturday 18th of June however the community garden will continue well beyond the G8 summit next month.

The Cre8 summit site is situated at Eglington Toll- take the number 44/57/22/23 to get there.

For more info and updates please call the Cre8 summit hotline on mobile on 07981 954132.

The project aims to transform an area on the route of the M74 left derelict by the planners into a community garden blossoming with flowers and activities, old folk relaxing and young people playing but most importantly our neighbourhoods building.

After a series of public meetings the Cre8 Summit is transforming the area through guerrilla gardening. Last sunday people spent the day deciding how to design the community garden, work on which has now begun in ernest despite some rain, but hey, that's good for the garden!

The area of land is near Govanhill and Gorbles between Devon St and McKinley Street, and lies on the propsed route of the M74 motorway extension, which will cut through 2 communites and cause massive congestion and contamination- (for more info see
http://www.jam74.org and
http://www.corporatewatch.org.uk/?lid=1229)

Over the last few days there has also been several workshops held at the community space and more continue through til saturday when an event celebrating the work done transforming the land will be held - for info and listing see:

Ahead of the project the Cre8 Summit project said
"So much of Glasgow is cut up by wasted land which could blossom with flowers, food, colour, youth engaging, old folk relaxing, but most importantly, our neighbourhoods building and owning their own landscape. We wish to Cre8 a garden, a park, a community space, and a place all folk can enjoy.
We do not work like the planners bogged down with bureaucracy and red tape; we plan to do this for ourselves and to do it not next year but now."

For this project to succeed we need your skills, energy and enthusiasm - from running a workshop to an afternoons gardening, or bringing the kids down and having a cuppa tea.

Cre8 Summit is a group of people from Glasgow and beyond who see that the problems caused by the G8 are global but the solutions are local. It is a loose collective of builders, gardeners, artists; DJs, soil engineers, musicians, skaters and landscapers who offer to share their skills and learn from the Southside.

Just as dams are shoved on the people of India or roads are shoved on the people of Glasgow, the G8 has been shoved on the people of Scotland from Westminster, Brussels & Washington.

We are doing this because we believe that many of the problems of the world are caused by a lack of solidarity amongst communities and that by coming together to create and maintain a space that is of benefit to all strengthens us all. Cre8 Summit believes in globally supporting local struggle.
