The Village Gardeners

Village Gardeners Thurs 22 October. 

Hello all, just a note to keep you abreast of the budding Village Gardeners. 

To date, we have had two get-togethers up at Hillstown and are already making an impact. The weather has also been good for our outside meetings.

We salvaged 4 wooden planters and a large concrete ring, which we have planted up to give us all cheer as we see the winter blooms. 

Work has started on a flower bed, which is looking very good, although it will certainly evolve as the seasons progress. 

A few residents have kindly given us some plants from their gardens to help us along. 

So far there have been five u3a members pitching in and being creative.  But being in the open we could branch out and create a splinter group should anyone else wish to come along. 

We are an equal opportunity group, which means Kevin and I dig the holes for plants and Maggie and Pat tell us we have dug it in the wrong spot!
