News from the Community Gardens
Autumn sown broad beans defying the cold weather.
It's been a wet and busy January with even the odd day of sunshine, but the ground is still pretty waterlogged! Our committed volunteers have kept regularly turning out to keep going with the winter tasks and we now have a great 4 compost bin system ready to keep us going through the year.
The compost has been turned and painstakingly sieved and the winter lettuce keeps growing in the poly tunnel as the days slowly begin to lengthen.
The first signs of spring are awakening with the cobnut catkins, kale and even snowdrops making a welcome appearance.
Tuesday afternoons at Oaklands Park Community Garden have now stopped for the winter but
Wednesday and Saturday morning sessions in the Bishop’s Palace Vegetable Garden continue throughout the year, so do come along as we'd love to see you.
All sessions are free, and we provide tea, coffee and snacks.
