Phase II of the station garden is about to happen …
Next week Men in Sheds will be delivering two raised beds for Phase 2 of the garden and there will be two open gardening sessions to fill these.
- Filling the raised beds with soil – Friday 27th September at 10:30 am – 12:30pm
- Planting the raised beds – Sunday, 6th October at 2pm-4pm
Also, keep your eyes on the the willdlife friendly garden over the next month as planting starts to take shape.
Please let us know if you have any insect friendly plants that you would like to donate firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to plant some donated plants at the first of our regular monthly gardening parties on Sunday, 6th October.
See you soon.
Thanks to all who came to yesterday’s clearing session.
We are thrilled by both the good turnout and by what we have achieved together. The ground has been cleared of weeds for Phase 2 of the garden. The silver birch trees, buddleja and grapevine are looking great now that more weeds (especially the pesky bindweed!) have been cleared away from them.
The two new raised beds are due to be installed by the end of this month. We will be in touch shortly with future dates for planting and group sessions.
Hard at work!
We had a good turnout for our latest clearing session at the station yesterday. We cleared most of the area near the platform ready for the next raised beds to be installed. Many thanks to those that turned out and to neighbours who loaned their wheelie bins for the rubbish.
There’s another clearing session next Sunday 8th September at 10.00 am to finish the work, so please come along.
Please note – we’ve had to postpone the delivery of the raised beds, so the dates planned for filling them and planting them up have also had to be changed. We’ll advise the new dates as soon as we can.
