Community Garden get-together – 29th November 2011

Community Garden get-together
Tuesday 29th November
1.30pm to 3.30pm 

Growing Newsome and Stirley Farm have adopted the Community Garden on Occupation Road in Newsome village.

This overgrown space was converted into a garden in 2009 with funding that the Community Assistance Network secured via a Grassroots grant. Growing Newsome members planted some vegetables there a couple of years ago, but there’s since been uncertainty over who is going to look after the space, and the brambles have re-asserted themselves (as they do).

So Growing Newsome and Stirley Farm have decided that we’re going to look after the garden between us, and we’ll have a get-together now and then to tidy things up and do some more planting. Soon local residents will be able to enjoy fresh vegetables, fruit and herbs from the garden again – anyone who lives nearby is welcome to pick from the garden.

We’ll let you know each time that we’re meeting at the garden, so that you can come along and lend a hand, or come and chat to us about food growing. Our first visit is on Tuesday 29th November from 1.30pm. Please come and join in if you can.
