We’re working with local artists to commission murals across Garforth and beyond. The first, at Emsleys Solicitors, was designed with edibles in mind.

Art has the power to get people talking. It can brighten up communities, giving public places a splash of colour, character and beauty. Art can also be informative, symbolise local history and give a community a sense of identity.

Designed by Penny Rowe and Angela Hennessy, our first mural shows plants growing upwards as a positive symbol of growth. Many of the flowers grow locally and are edible. The full list includes; Pea, borage, pineapple weed, dandelion, camomile, nasturtium, rocket, clover, leek, viola and sunflower.
