My thanks to anyone that liked our photo on the Dunstable Council Photo Competition because we won and now our NO DIG garden will be on the front cover of Novembers issue of Talk of the Town magazine that goes out to 16,000 homes in Dunstable so I’m hoping with my 350 word article inside we will get a few new volunteers.
We have got a huge event on Tuesday 29th October at 10am I’ve donated 18 raspberry plants to the garden from my allotment and the students I’m teaching gardening next year are coming in their half term holiday so that I can teach them to plant the raspberries and hopefully ask them to care for them. I’ve invited the Mayor and the newspaper. Just need lovely sunny weather to bring the people. Tesco are donating the ingredients for hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows they have been fantastic throughout all of this project. Visit our Face Book page to see how NO DIG has inspired this community garden.
Congratulations on the win, I’m sure it is the first of many. All down to your hard work.
Let me know if there is anything I can do to help on Tuesday as I am only planning to be redesigning the lay out of my plot.
I have just spent a very enjoyable morning at incredible edible Dunstable and I have to say I am astounded at what has been achieved in such a short space of time. Sahara has clearly worked hard and effectively to achieve this.
What a brilliant idea – it seems to me that these community projects are growing and growing (!)
