Update on the park

We raised £65 of cash money to be spent on plants from our favourite garden centre in Enfield, it was a scorching day and we made new friends.

 Bug hotel still going strong.
living willow tunnel really well established now.

 empty patch for plants that like a shady spot

 Our beloved pond complete with Lily pads.
This enormous Laurel bush has exhausted the soil and taken over the flower bed. We hope to turn this corner into an area for fruit trees.

Autumn Gardening Club

The most exciting part of the year is here!
Harvest season of nourishment, eat well, live well, feel better. Prepare for the colder winter months by feasting on the fruits of your labour!

So far our plans for September and October look like this but of course that depends on what Mother Nature has in mind. Rain or shine we will meet every Saturday until the end of October.
