2014 will be the year of the greenhouse! We’ve removed the old fruit cage, leaving enough space to give our greenhouse a prime position in the garden. We still need to level the ground slightly, but by March the greenhouse should be fully installed.
Visit Llangollen community garden on Saturday 18th May and see the launch our Bee World area, find out more about the garden and enjoy a BBQ in the sunshine!
The day starts at 10am with a visit from Susan Elan Jones, who will be helping launch our new Bee World area. The BBQ will be serving food at around 1pm, with the day wrapping up around 5pm.
