Garden Work Force Plea

The Kitchen Garden in snow - March 2013So much for spring on 24 March, it was more like midwinter. We couldn’t even find the raised beds, never mind getting them ready for planting.

So, please mark SUNDAY 14 APRIL on your calendar as the day that we work on the garden. Same place and same time – 11am. Look forward to seeing you there.

Maureen (01298 871542) & Judy (01298 872408)

WANTED: GARDEN WORK FORCE

It’s spring (hopefully) and time to get more of the Kitchen Garden ready for planting.

So – on SUNDAY 24 MARCH at 11am (weather permitting) we want to get an enthusiastic work party together to get the garden licked into shape (perhaps dug into shape is more appropriate)!

We have areas that need destoning and digging over, grit to be dug in to improve drainage and a pathway to be made.  And that’s just for starters!

So if you would like to help please join us for an hour or so – everyone is welcome.  We’ll be in the garden (behind St John’s Institute) between 11am and 1pm.  If you would like to find out more about the Kitchen Garden please contact Maureen (01298 871542) or Judy (01298 872408).

We hope to see you there!
