Spring Clean at Community Gardens

Before the April meeting, on the last Monday of the month, local group members gave all four of our community gardens a spring clean. At Bean Row the potatoes were earthed up, or hidden under earth to the surprise of Norman and Des, and more veg seeds were planted. The Arnot Street garden was giving a mow by the group's mower man- Des (see above) and a bit of a weed. We appear to be sharing the Kings Court garden with a number of groups of youths but we still gave it a clear up and planted some of our new plants bought with our Litter Strategy prize voucher for Jupiter. The ASDA herb garden wasn't left out and the herbs have spung into life with the latest spring sun.

All in all the gardens are blooming, including a range of wildlife friendly plants- which Corrie refers to as weeds. There has been a number of offers to keep the gardens clear of litter and weeds and to continue the voluntary effort which has achieved so much from so little so far.
