Let’s get digging!

After weeks of lots of admin we have been given the go ahead to create the Community Garden! Woo hoo!

Here is our plan…

Day 1 – 8th April 2018 10:00am – Turning over the soil

On day 1 we need to dig out all of the existing grass and weeds, put in some wooden posts to mark out the edge of the garden and aerate the soil. We are unable to use any machines on the site due to the potential of utilities underneath the site and so the job is going to require a lot of manual labour.

How you can help

  • Do you have a brown bin that you could donate some space in? We’re going to have a lot of green waste to get rid of and knowing we can use some brown bins will save us a trip to the tip.
  • People to dig, the more hands the better, please bring your tool of choice šŸ™‚
  • Help putting in the posts, We think we need to put in about 20 posts. These have been kindly donated by one of the residents on the lane.

Please contact us if you can help with any of these requests

The amount of time this will take depends on how many people are around to help. If you can’t make 10am but are available later in the day please still let us know – we might be very grateful for a tag team to take over in the afternoon!

Day 2 – 15th April 2018 10:00am – Condition the soil – Add compost and sand

We’re going to have another day of conditioning the soil on the 15 April. Full details of what we need to do will be posted on here after the 8 April

How you can help

Donate a bag of sand compost (we’ll confirm what we need once we have turned over the soil on the 8 April.)

Provide more labour!

Thank you so much for everyone’s support to date. Let’s get digging!
