Mike, Frank and Dave were down at the Harbour Ward Community Garden recently. One wonderful sunny morning we improved the water collection on the slope above. This year there will hopefully be lots of beds with happy healthy plants in them
We added some corrugated sheets of plastic, which should deed into the guttering and waterbutt nicely. Powered by Rooibus tea and cheese biscuits it was lovely, what a few! Mike also installed a bench to make enjoying it even nicer.
We are proud to announce that we are taking over the running of the Harbour Ward Community Garden CIC from next year.
It’s a great project and we look forward to continuing to run it. It’s important to have access to green space so projects such as this are truly wonderful!

We had a great time last week helping the Harbour Ward Community Gardens. We scrambled up the slope to help fix the drainage system, one collecting water from the slope to feed a water butt below. We even saw a slow worm!
Over a morning we helped clear the slope, dig the guttering down to make more of an angle and them helped to create the first of several water collection points. Hopefully after a bit of rain there will be a nice full water butt.
