A month or so ago we had an informal meeting/conversation at the Community Garden about plans for the year, we did a spot of bird watching too for the RSPB for the national Birdwatch campaign. See results on the Empty Common Blog, dated February 22nd:
One of the suggestions made was to try a crop rotation programme, well we have got as far as marking out specific areas for each genus’: Legumes; Roots and Brassica.
I was approached by Charlotte of Verdantearth.co.uk and one of the gardeners at Empty Common about making signs to mark out the plots, so using some lovely slate slabs & a bit of chalk marker as I used on the Big Black shed, we’ve made up some signs… (Brassica still to come 🙂 and they were put up this sunny Sunday, great to see them in their designated place!
I hope they are enjoyed and inspire lots of creative conversation and possibly gardening too!
