I recently paid a visit to Strawberry Lane in St George – an allotment garden for the local community. Whilst I was there, volunteers were planting fruit trees to add to their existing crop of vegetables, herbs, soft fruits, and apple and pear trees.
The volunteers meet regularly and are always looking for new people to join them – there is no commitment needed, you can just go along when you feel like it. It is a great way to access a beautiful green space, eat locally grown produce and meet others with similar interests. The group is also looking for funding and offers of building materials to help construct a shelter on the site where people can relax, take a break and shield themselves from the weather.
If you are able to help in any way, please contact David (the community garden lead) on 07904 155 992.
