Growing Active

We are pleased to announce that Karen Wade has accepted the role of part time seasonal, Community Growing Officer responsible for the development, delivery and the sharing of knowledge around community growing and the value of greenspace regeneration.

With funding in place from SCVO and Awards For All , we aim to add value to the work completed last year, namely fencing off from herbivores an area of the Doctors Park, planting of fruit trees and hedgerows for nature, and the creation of the wildflower meadow. There is much to do, raised beds to construct and infill, a tool shed and Polycrub to erect, seeds to be sourced, grown on and planted.

This really is a worthwhile project to be involved with, good for your mental health and wellbeing. We will from time to time need some volunteers e.g. to erect the Polycrub and tool shed, anyone with an odd hour or two to spare will be made most welcome and it goes without say that sampling the locally grown produce will be an integral part of any event.
