Weekend Working Parties – a Big Thank You!

Sunday Working Party Volunteers

We would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who came along this weekend to help us prepare the ground for the installation of a new electrical and water supply around the garden. Everyone worked really hard and did a fantastic job.

Clearing the weeds in readiness for the soil

The work involved weeding, moving piles of rubble and digging away part of the big soil “mountain” in the south of the Walled Garden to clear a route close to the walls so that a digger can get through to make the required trenches. The soil from the mountain was then transported to the other end of the garden to help level out some of the uneven ground in what will become the “productive” quadrant.

Here are some photos of the volunteers from the Saturday afternoon and Sunday crews. If anyone has any photos from Saturday morning, do please send them in to email: info.lgh.garden@gmail.com so that we can include as many volunteers as possible.
