Guy’s Cliffe Walled Garden Trust : Email: email@example.com
The Community Action Day team from National Grid had an away day in the garden and built a set of steps to improve the safety of access, and they relocated the compost bins so we can extend them..
We continued to harvest many of our crops to sell from the Hintons shop.
Work progressed on the path edging.
Work began to get the garden ready for winter, clearing the beds and sowing green manure for digging in next year.
Over the year we had accumulated a very large pile of horsetail, a pernicious weed. This cannot be composted and so it was all burned on our Guy Fawkes’ day bonfire. We were very glad to see the back of it.
By the end of the month the path edging team had finished edging the beds and borders. A great job, transforming the look of the garden.
The warm weather meant many plants thought it was spring and started to grow again. On our last volunteer day of the year, 29th December, we sat outside in the sunshine eating our lunch.
