For the last 3 years we have been growing vegetables behind the ice-cream kiosk on Abbey Meadow, this year we are growing more, and experimenting with a new vegetable plot made of old recycling boxes outside Old Station House.
What’s the idea ? Our immediate objective is to create a herb and vegetable garden that is attractive and productive, organic, and wildlife-friendly. In the longer term we aim to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and imported food, and encourage community growing.
Where ? In Abbey Meadow, in the beds between the ice cream kiosk and the river. At Old Station House, on the sunny side facing Old Station yard.
Can you help ? We already have a small team of enthusiasts but will need more hands to make this work. In particular we’ll need help with:
- Sowing seeds
- Planting out
Helpers and visitors to the park will be encouraged to pick the produce ! Knowledge of gardening would be great but it’s not essential, we will all be learning as we go along.
