Growing things

Growing food and flowers without chemicals helps keep our environment healthy. In the last few years the Vale of White Horse District Council have offered us various sites on Abbey Meadow to showcase this.

The Wildflower Maze between the playground and the river hums with insects on sunny days.

The “Bee-Beds” by the toilet block and by the children’s playground are a riot of colour and attract lots of bees and other important pollinators.

 

“Edible Abingdon” is a programme to grow vegetables in small spaces – by the kiosk on Abbey Meadow, and outside Old Station House.
