It has been very busy over at Stanwell Nursery’s edible gardens this month. We’ve been clearing, building, planting and planning…and it’s starting to look quite wonderful. Thanks to our fantastic volunteers, the gardens are blooming and the Junior Carboneers are doing an excellent job of watering everything too.
The Stanwell Nursery croft plot is filling up nicely. This week we planted the 2nd early potatoes in…The children will be invited to come down to Leith Community Croft at harvest time to play ‘find the tattie!’
The Growing Grotto! This week our Gardening Club Volunteers discussed and agreed the design of a ‘growing grotto’ space to provide another area for the children to enjoy. Using local and mostly reused materials, our fantastic volunteers will be building this with support from our local volunteer (who is also an Architect) Elaine. This growing ‘grotto’ as we’ve fondly named it, will ‘self water’ by collecting rainwater in it’s roof and redirecting it into the planters below…
This is the original circle base that we will be building the growing grotto around.
