What We’ve Doing: Water Collection At The Harbour Ward Community Garden

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.

Hi to all, sorry its been so long since an update email but here we go now.

The seed bomb workshop was a great success, thank to all involved.
We have now taken over the east cliff allotments and are in the process of becoming a community interest company. This is an exciting opportunity and we will see what develops… updates to follow.
We have already dug over two beds on the new allotment in Newington and have the rest of the area ready for digging over. Pat’s allotment is a continuing harvest and we will soon be re-planting and planning for the next season.
This Thursday 20th October, we will be hosting a communal meal using our own produce.. for anyone and everyone who wants to come along, it will be on a “pay as you feel or can afford” basis. This takes place in Kipps Alehouse at 7pm. It will also be a good opportunity to celebrate our achievements this year.
So, see you all Thursday.

What We’ve Been Doing: Helping The Harbour Ward Community Gardens

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.
