11am - 1pm

Give it a Grow: DIY

What we will be doing: 

We’ll learn and practise basic landscape, design and carpentry skills to make a new raised bed in the community garden (Project Grow). The physical session will also include weeding, digging in compost and sowing winter green manure to protect the soil and provide an early nectar for pollinators.


How it will work:

Simply drop us an email the day before to sign up to the session. Currently, we can only accept 5 volunteers, and we need to receive a confirmation that you will attend the session, so we can control the number of people joining in.
