A new higher raised bed to improve accessibility in the garden

A new higher raised bed to improve accessibility in the garden

We are in the process of upgrading and refurbishing the community garden, thanks to a successful application for funding from the Postcode Lottery.

Our first job has been the building and placing of new raised beds, led by the Urban Canopy group. We’ve made a great start thanks to Urban Canopy plus volunteers from the Friends of Ruskin Park and community gardeners.

Together we have put the bed frames together, dug up the top layer of grass in the beds, dug holes to securely place the beds, and filled them with a mixture of manure and soil.

Over the coming weeks we’ll continue our work on the new beds, as well as weeding and digging over our existing beds ready for some planting over winter.

We are very grateful for all the help we have received so far.

More work is planned in the garden and more volunteers are very welcome to come along and lend a hand.
