Join the Gate Keepers!

You may have seen our brand new Bio Graffiti Wall on Jacobins Chare and wondered what it is all about. It's all part of the Gate Keepers project to create a wildlife friendly and relaxing urban garden right here in the city centre.

Our Bio Graffiti Wall has been designed, with the input of the young people of Streetwise, to encourage moss and lichen to grow to and create a natural piece of growing graffiti, whilst providing a home for small insects and bees.

We are very excited to see how the wall develops as it is the first bio graffiti wall of its kind!

The next stage of the plans are to use the raised beds in the area to nurture and grow a range of plants that support wildlife and provide a relaxing space to enjoy.

This fantastic project is an opportunity for young people of all ages to come along and work with the guys from Streetwise and National Trust to help bring the Jacobins Chare area of The Gate to life.

If you would be interested in becoming a Gate Keeper then please contact Sarah at Streetwise sarahdm@streetwisenorth.org.uk
