An update from Growing Local:
"Our project is rapidly taking shape and we now due to take over our 3-field 16-acre site immediately after Easter!
We are planning on holding three open events in April and May to talk to people about how they can get involved in our project by:
– volunteering to help develop the site into our market gardens, educational garden and orchard areas – we are looking for help in everything from gardening to hedge laying, carpentry to bee keeping!
– taking on a future vegetable crop share
– coming along to our workshops, events and training opportunities (for schools, families, children, young people and adults)
And so, so much more!
SATURDAY 15TH APRIL 11AM to 3PM The Growing Local Gardens Open Day
SATURDAY 29TH APRIL 2PM TO 6PM FITNESS, FOOTBALL & FOOD EVENT at the Belmont Wanderers Pitches
SUNDAY 28TH MAY 10AM TO 4PM BELMONT WANDERERS AWARDS DAY at the Belmont Wanderers Pitches

Please spread the word about your NEW SOUTH WYE COMMUNITY GARDENS!"

If you have a community growing space where you are and you'd like to get it on the map, please use this one and let us know how it works for you.
