Community Gardening @ Fox’s Field
This session will be either to finish the fence if this hasn’t been completed, or to start moving the hay bales which weigh down the black plastic in the perennial vegetable area. It’s very much like turning compost, and last time we found some hatched grass snake eggs! There will also be wheeelbarrowing to and fro, so do bring a wheelbarrow if you can. Everyone is welcome to help, no need to book and no prior experience needed. Please wear suitable shoes and gardening gloves.
Locals will access the field via the basins, but as the footpath is currently closed due to health and safety reasons, we cannot officially direct you from this side. You can also enter the field from Millstream Gardens side, however please walk or cycle as there is no parking. You can park in the car park behind “one stop”. If you use What3words, the entrance to Fox’s Field on the Tonedale side is phones.card.corrupted. The nearest postcode to the Tonedale entrance side is TA21 0DH. There is a children’s play park across the river from Millstream gardens at the top of the field, and you can also access via the field gate on Linden Hill, although there is also no parking here. Gardening sessions usually meet at the metal storage container near the field gate. This is site 5 on the foraging map.
