Get Growing Trail success!


Hi everyone,

We opened last Saturday as part of the city-wide Get Growing Trail; sunshine, cakes, new faces, newts and installing new 4 brand spanking new cycle racks – what’s not to like!  We had a lovely time, I got sunburn and despite our fabulous cheap prices made a tidy £72.
Our next Saturday opening day will be Saturday 7th July 10-2pm.  By then the sun will be shining and our raised beds full of delicious veg.  Also after listening to those of you that work/are otherwise engaged on Wednesdays but still want a piece of the action I’m thinking we’ll start opening on Monday evenings 5-7pm.
This will be only during summer months for those who fancy some gentle beginning of the week gardening, salad harvesting, watering and lounging by the pond.  Let me know if that’s something you might be interested in.  I think it’ll be a nice way to ease into the week.  Children are welcome.  Onsite disabled parking is available – just let me know by email/phone/text that you’re coming and I’ll fully open gates at the end of Monk Road so you can drive on.  I’ll confirm the start date for those soon – but probably end of the month or when the rain stops!
Up and coming work this month is carrying on with the second poly tunnel saga, we’re hoping that’ll be up in the next few weeks and full of raised beds so we can sit back on sunny days to come with a slice of melon. We’re also carry on planting up the Bag Garden, working on the herb garden and of course general pottering and eating biscuits.  Our salad beds are going great guns and volunteers at the moment are rewarded with a delicious and beautiful bag of salad.  Broad beans are just round the corner so come and get involved!
See you down in garden
