There has been a lot of interest and support for the idea of a Community Garden at All Hallows’, we have done some thinking and planning and shortly some actual work will get under way! We have a work afternoon planned for Sunday 14th April starting from about 12:30pm.
On our first work session we hope to cut back some of the more invasive and neglected plants, prune, cut grass, start to mark out and dig vegetable beds, build compost heaps, clear litter, sit and drink tea, and think and plan!
We hope to develop the garden along Permaculture Principles (which you can read about elsewhere on this site) and develop the garden as a space for the Community Project and local people to grow fruit and vegetables as well as having a green space to relax and enjoy nature and whatever sun we get this year.
- Earth Care
- People Care
- Fair Share
and it has the All Hallows’ rainbow of hope and inclusivity superimposed on it.
Everyone is welcome to come and help though if you are a child you will need to bring an adult that you can supervise! Do bring gardening gloves and tools if you have them.
We also need the following:
- palletes to build compost heaps
- wooden stakes for marking out plots
- fruit and vegetable plants – if you are able to propagate some of your own at home that we can use that would be brilliant!
- learners and teachers of gardening skills
Do come and join us, we will make sure that the kettle is kept hot!
