Up came some of the largest tree roots on the garden this weekend – great effort!
It has been an exciting time at the garden… After a successful information evening, we have new volunteers, have cleared a large area and have added more detail to our garden plan.
Three community garden volunteers attended a two day permaculture course at the Garth Community Garden – they brought back many new ideas for the garden plan. The plan is really developing now, but it still needs input, especially from you experienced gardeners out there!
We have started removing tree stumps and roots from the site. This has been hard work for our volunteers, but nothing they cannot manage – we intend to remove those roots remaining over the next few weeks.
The site is teeming with wildlife, during the Keep Wales Tidy ‘Wild Weekend’ (27-28th October) we intend to build some enhanced habitat zones. We will use material found on the site, to create brash piles. Brash piles are great for wildlife and will help mark out some of the areas on site. If you like wildlife, or just want to help, this will be a great weekend to get involved!
Gardening sessions run every weekend, and on selected evenings during the week. Get in touch if you are interested in in joining us – click here!
Llangollen community garden sits in a easily accessed location, close to Plas Newydd.
The garden has been set up with the aim of providing an opportunity for local people, groups and schools to grow their own food and engage with nature. It is also hope that as the very practical and positive project develops, links within the community will be strengthened. Produce from the garden will be shared out amongst those involved, and any surplus donated at the time.
The first few working sessions establishing access and beginning clearance, as well as making plans for the future. Planting will start next year, but currently the area is very overgrown and so there is still a large amount of clearing to take place.
Working sessions run every Saturday morning from 10.00 – 12.00. Sessions are also organised for evenings during the week. Access to the site is restricted to these working sessions.
We would love to hear from anyone who might be interested in getting involved with the garden. Perhaps you would like to help clear the site? Or perhaps you would be interested in helping to design or plant the garden?
