Tuesday 7th August
10.30am to 12 noon

We’ve had mixed fortunes with our vegetable planters in Newsome village so far. Our herb planter outside Raymond and Jenny’s shop on Towngate seems to be thriving in all the rain. We hope you’re enjoying the fresh herbs there, including borage, fennel and oregano.

The Community Garden on Occupation Road isn’t looking quite so good though – it’s getting overgrown again and needs a bit of care and attention.

Growing Newsome participants and volunteers from Stirley Farm are meeting at the Community Garden on 7th August for a bit of a tidy up and a chat. Please come along if you can spare an hour to give the garden a helping hand.

We’ll be getting some more planters for Church Lane soon, and we’d like to have a regular get-together to keep things well looked-after. Please let us know if you’d like to join in. We’d also love to hear your suggestions about what you’d like us to plant. More herbs – or something different?

If you have any suggestions, please leave a reply on this page or email
