Seed Saving Wednesday

Regular Gardening will be on Wednesday from 3pm for those that can't make Saturdays. Dot and myself (Seoidin) gardened today, we did a lot of weeding around the spinach and strawberries. We collected seeds off the Nasturcians. This is the first year that we have started seed saving in our garden, which is exciting. Beans and peas are drying in the shed and Willie printed and designed seed packets for the garden. Sister Timothy and Sister Deepthy called to say hi and had a tour of the garden.

South Circular Road Community Food Garden Project

The South Circular Road Community Food Garden Project started in April 2007. We have a derelict site on loan from ST Salvage Company that we have converted into a community food garden. This is a continuation of the initial successful Dolphins Barn Community squatted food garden that was on the canal from 2005 -2007.
