Our Wales Flagship, Furnace to Flowers

Furnace to Flowers, in Ebbw Vale, transformed parts of the former Ebbw Vale Steelworks as the Grow Wild flagship site for Wales.

The Furnace to Flowers project transformed the extensive steelworks site by creating a corridor of colour from spring to autumn. They created sensory gardens, adventure areas and places to simply relax, boosting local pride by providing opportunities for everyone to get involved.

Led by the Gwent Wildlife Trust, the project has not erased the area’s industrial heritage, but celebrated its unique community history to build a brighter future.
