The Green Team is a multi level partnership involving a range of RSLs and organisations in Inverclyde. The training providers are Inverclyde Community Development Trust who are working with predominantly 18 - 25 year old, long term unemployed from local area being paid a wage through Future Jobs Fund. They are doing all the hardworks, slabbing, joinery etc. The Trust also have an arts graduate who will be working with the local, primary and high schools and also older residents from the area to produce the heritage paintings for a gallery wall.

In Works are working with people with learning difficulties who are doing all the planting works. Local tenants and Residents Associations are also keen to be involved in planting the courtyard areas.
