We are piloting some community gardening on the first Sunday of each month at 2pm in the Royal Edinburgh Community Garden on Myreside Road. So far, it has been a great success with a really friendly atmosphere: 22 people came along last Sunday, 3rd March (gallery of pictures below). We did some watering in the glasshouse and repotting. Outside, we were renewing the woodchip by the picnic table and digging over some beds. The kids enjoyed fetching chippings in their little wheelbarrows, they also made a rope swing in the orchard and built a den. All our efforts were rewarded by some banana loaf and chocolate brownies.
Martyn and Alex will be leading up the next Shandon Local Food Group community gardening on 7th April at 2pm at the Royal Edinburgh Community Gardens, Myreside Rd.
