Since the start of the year we have been busy with maintenance and tidying up. We planted blackthorns and hazel to thicken up the hedges and to improve the habitat for birds, clean the air by the car park a little and hopefully provide us with nuts and sloe berries. We also planted a couple of grapes in the raise beds which hopefully will climb over the back wall.

March is the ideal time to start gardening for the summer. So since then we have been busy planting seeds and tending to the raised beds as well as completing our tyre-based stage. We had a clear up of the shelter and put together some furniture in preparation for the start of the events season, minding the hordes of frogs as we worked!

If you fancy getting involved, we hold a volunteer workday every 3rd Saturday of the Month. Keep up to date with the latest developments and upcoming events by following us on Twitter or Facebook or check out our website.
