Every Wednesday the acre is open to all those who want to find out about the project and see if they would benefit from coming along.
The activities that we get involved in are very varied and often depend upon the time of the year. Some of the activities we’ve got up to in the past are putting in a new pond, establishing vegetable beds, planting willow hedges, planting bulbs, and tending fruit orchards. It can vary week to week depending on the weather and the season but it is always fun!
No horticultural knowledge is necessary to come along (many of us are self confessed novices!). It’s just an opportunity to spend some time in nature on a fulfilling project together.
Most importantly there is always plenty of refreshments and opportunity to talk together over a hot cup of tea and some cake.
Before attending a Wednesday session please email email@example.com so we are ready to welcome you to the acre, we look forward to seeing you soon!
Please take a read of our weekly blog to find out more about what we get up to…
So many things happening on the acre in the past week it seems as if we’re competing with the spring flowers to come to bloom!
Next day saw the Wednesday crew role up their sleeves and really get stuck into the garden. Don was soon busy weeding one of our beds and planting some of the flowers that Nick had kindly donated from his garden and now we only have one bed in urgent need of weeding.
The acre is beginning to look quite glorious. Marianne and Sarah went plant shopping and the " Madge Green Bee Bed " is really taking shape.
A noticeable feature has moved location as our greenhouse now sits proudly on its new base.
Welcoming Wednesday had a great turnout of volunteers together with some visitors to the acre. The first visitors we welcomed were from Hart District Council whom we had met at the NHS Innovation Conferences that we have attended.
Despite the recent wild stormy weather our new shed is very nearly complete…all the electrics are in, it's fully insulated and solid as a rock!
Work has finally started on our much longed for gardening cabin! For months we’ve had the square of rubble, promising to be the foundations and finally it’s going up, another milestone for space2grow!
On our regular gathering on Wednesday it was like Picadilly Circus with guests and visitors, volunteers and the acre pack all making the most of the wonderful weather.
Nothing heralds the change of season as well as the bright yellow daffodils with their ' trumpets' proudly announcing that spring is coming. With such lovely weather drifting over the acre it is truly magical to see the changes, knowing that longer and warmer days are on the way.
On Wednesday it was busy, busy, busy as we made great strides under Nicks guidance in laying our new path. The ground was prepared before a membrane to suppress the weeds was laid down.
