In 2016 we started a new venture: can we grow vegetables in old recycling boxes? The management of Old Station House offered us a wonderful, sunny sheltered site on the South of the building, facing Old Station Yard, and even installed 2 water-butts for us! The result? Lots of veg, lots of interest from the residents and passers-by, and a gong for the “Most Improved Garden” for OSH from the Order of St John Care Trust.
This year we will be adding a raised bed made from old planks sourced from Oxford Wood Recycling in Suffolk Way, Abingdon.
