Between the opening of Covid testing clinic at the hub and the Winter weather settling in, things have been quiet at the community garden for the last few months, but it definitely hasn't been forgotten. Snowpeas are unfurling, greens are growing and it looks like we should have a mighty beetroot harvest in the near future!
We’re beginning to look towards Spring planning, and ideas for growth for the garden project when restrictions eventually ease, and into the future.
And we need your help!
We’re looking for volunteers to join the garden sub-committee of the community representatives group to help with Spring planning and future dreaming, -think event planning, fundraising, site coordination. There are lots of ways to use your particular talents to help. It’s not too much work though, we promise, so if you’re passionate about seeing a community garden become established long term in the area please get involved!
We’re also on the lookout for keen gardeners (beginner or seasoned!) to raise some seeds soon for transplanting into the garden early Spring. We’ll provide all the bits and pieces needed, you just need to provide some love and care. We want to get a head start this year so that things have a chance to grow- here’s hoping for a red tomato or two next Summer!
