Spring 2011

Hi all fellow community gardens,
We have been doing some tidying up now that the new year is here in the community garden.I took some photo`s of some of the plots been readied for the year ahead.Applied our own compost from our compost bins onto two of the vegetable sections only at this time,we will be
getting the other two section as soon as we can weather permitting, lightly dug in and covered with straw to stop soil from drying out and keep weed seeds taken a hold and having to weed again in some areas.Please see photo`s enclosed.

Some section were covered with old carpet over the winter,will cover completely with straw,and will plant through the straw.

The joy of Spring.

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.
