Another development ...

The two slightly raised beds close to the pitch are now going to be communal beds (following discussions with the Park Management). The risk of new people taking them on and their produce being trampled on or stolen was felt to be too high in that particular location. We can plant them with herbs and flowers, some of which we can bring over from the beds in the children's playground area, and anything else you think would be good. Everything that grows will be for everyone to share. 

The other seven beds are for the refugees, as planned. I'm waiting to hear from Sarah at Salusbury World when the first of the refugees will be coming along to be introduced. Maggie

Please let me know if there's another way I could help out - would love to :)

Miko, the park keepers are all commenting on the quality of the build - entirely down to you and thank you again. Maggie

Thanks for your replies, Helen, Sally and Kirsty. Helen and Sally, you are now 'garden buddies', as is Helene, who does the Transition blog and whom I met with this morning. What a girlie group!

Are any of you guys - Fausto, Mark, Miko - up for buddy hood?

Marianne, there is a raised bed available now in the children's playground area. It can be yours if you would like it. Can you get back to me as soon as possible to let me know if you are still interested? Maggie

Hi Maggie - the new beds look amazing, I popped down to see them yesterday :) I love the idea of a buddy system - I'm still pretty new to gardening (asking friends and family for advice at the moment!) so not sure I would be the best person? If there's any other way I can help, please let mw know. Kirsty

Hi Maggie, wow, the new beds look fantastic! I would be very happy to be a buddy for a refuge family. The 8th April would be the best day for me for the group garden.
All the best, Sally
