Like David Moyles, we are now preparing for the new season up at the allotment. The second plot is now dug over, raised beds constructed and ready for a delivery of top soil and we have pruned the fruit trees. We have also discovered a pond which will help attract wildlife to the South West end of the allotment. We have been told there are frogs and toads in hedgerows surrounding the allotment. Brent council have also constructed a toilet complete with access ramp.
Tenants are now planning a visit to a garden centre in late March to purchase fruit shrubs and other materials.
Do you want to volunteer to work a raised bed to grow your own vegetables this year? Plenty of expert help available for the beginner and all levels of experience welcome. Please contact Jim Sheeran – Community Initiatives Officer for more details 020 7692 1252 [email protected]
