The Adopt a Patch initiative has resulted in the creation of a garden area on the
Tamar River bank, opposite to the brewery site and on the corner of the Tamar
The site is cared for by weekly inspection and maintenance and it is anticipated
that a seat will be built and installed by the team in the short term. Discussions with
the city council regarding the design and location of the seat are yet to be finalized.
The Adopt a Patch project has been incorporated within the community service
mission of the organization, where staff teams work across various projects to
assist in community outcomes. The beautification of the selected area in the Adopt
a Patch project has created a site to be appreciated by both brewery staff and the
general public. The Tamar river is much like many waterways in other cities that
have been re-discovered, as people-friendly areas, rather than industrial sites. The
addition of the garden space provided under the Adopt a Patch project adds to the
attraction of the river area. With student accommodation been created adjacent to
this site, more and more emphasis will be placed on making the river an enjoyable
place to be.
