Today we went on a little walk around the gardens in Stokes Croft, including the gardens at Marlborough Hill Street and Spring Hill.
Both gardens looked amazing. The trees are thriving on Marlborough Hill Street as are the artichokes and all the wonderful herbs that have been planted there and we really look forward to maintaining and adding to that garden this year. It’s a fun garden on a completely lost piece of ground and it’s exciting to see it start to have a life of it’s own, expand and start to provide Fruit and herbs for the community in which is sits.
Then we doodled up the hill to Spring Hill, another garden that has changed a lot since we first started to work on it, and which is now looked after by the community who have done a grand job of changing the space into one that is both productive and beautiful. This is another space that when we started to do some work there, took a lot of cleaning and tidying. There were cans, needles and nappies galore as well as some very sick looking plants! Strawberries and raspberries are now thriving where one there were just weeds and the beds which were also full of weeds and sick shrubs are being used for soft fruit and vegetables such as onions, garlic and broad beans. It’s an absolute joy to be in and can only get better.If you would like to get involved in either of these gardens, or any of the other 27 gardens across the city, please do get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will let you know when work parties are planned for!! After all, if you eat, you’re in!!
Today Sara, our project lead and founder, went to lunch at the cafe at St Paul’s Learning Centre, that is run by FareShare SW’s Surplus Supper Club. Here’s what she thought!! I was invited to this lunch a couple of weeks ago and was excited to be going as it is run by our Food […]
Meet by the bus stop opposite the Full Moon to help us to maintain the beds on and around Stokes Croft!! We will be clearing old plants away and encouraging reseeding by spreading the seeds they have produced along the way!
Do come along and say hello or join in for a while. To quote someone at the bus stop only the other day “what a difference seeing flowers makes when First buses are always bleedin’ late”.
Come along to help us mulch and replant the bed outside St Paul’s learning centre!!
We are helping Sustrans out on this bed, which is a part of the Imagine St Paul’s project that is aiming to make the streets of St Paul’s a better place for pedestrians and local people!!
We will be on site from 12-2
