Build it up, build it up, build it higher…




They say that it’s a sure sign of summer if the chair gets up when you do … and so it must be summer.  The heat is here, our last big harvest is only days away, and soon it will be time to pull out the spent crops.

We will then turn our gardening efforts to building up the soil.  We’ve enlisted the help of Carolyn from Turner’s Garden Centre to guide our soil building.  Stay in touch for details on a new Workshop coming soon to help you build your soil in your home garden.  Separately, a worm farm of bathtub proportions is about to be commissioned, and our soil will thank us for it in no time at all.

A special mention must go to Rocky Point Mulching.  They have just donated a full pallet of cow manure – which is sure to have our peas exploding out of their pods when autumn comes!  We are forever grateful to our sponsor businesses – we are very aware that times are tough and we ask that you keep them in mind.

If you’d like to get involved in some summer-chair-sticking or any of the projects at the garden, simply come along any Sunday afternoon from 2pm (BYO gloves, drinking water  and good humour).
