We held another community gardening session on Friday 4th May, 9-10.30am. Between 4 of us from the food group, we maintained the herb bed at Bulford Road, trimming the rosemary and lavender, replanting rosemary, sage and thyme that had died, adding more wood chippings, and getting on top of the weeds! The herbs are starting to become more bushy and look more beautiful now, the rosemary is in flower and the chives are covered in buds. Although unfortunately no new volunteers came along, probably due to a lack of advertising, we did stop and chat to lots of passers by, letting them know that as this is a community herb bed, they can pick herbs for their dinner on their way home. We also encouraged them to pull out a weed every time they passed - if everyone pulled up one weed, then it would stay looking very neat and tidy. We do need new volunteers for the gardening sessions to grow the project further in the future, so if you are interested, the next gardening session will be on Friday June 1st 9am-10.30am at the 2nd Rugby Pitch (see future events).
