This is a quick post. The garden opened last night and the team effort has achieved a staggering amount in the past week. We started as a group of women with a plan and now there’s a community garden but we couldn’t have done it without the men who came to help us. It’s great that they weren’t fazed by joining up with the Wonky WI – so thanks Kevin, Mark and Peter in particular.
We’ve got tons of great pictures but I wanted to quickly put this one up.
We had more trees than we were expecting delivered at lunchtime so spent a couple of hours of concerted effort clearing a new area, getting tyres, having more compost delivered, and planting them out.
It was beautiful to see happy children playing tag around them 3 hours later!
More pictures to follow soon.
One sad thing – our thoughts go out to the insprational Incredible Edible in Todmorden who have experienced terrible flooding which must have swept much of their planting away.
