West Belfast, regarded as an area of deprivation, statistics from the End Child Poverty Campaign (2013) stated that '"43% of children grow up in poverty in West Belfast." The St James' area of West Belfast is home to the 'Garden of Hope'. An urban farm situated within a housing estate. To the children, this is an escape from the banality of the everyday, giving the community and the children a purpose. The items used within the farm are donated from by the local community; each item has a sense of place. Following the conflict within Northern Ireland, this small yet family orientated community, are in the latter stages of redevelopment.
