Catnapping by the Polish memorial at Redbraes
What a difference a year makes. It is hard to believe that the view has changed so much since a group of enthusiastic volunteers started work on this site last spring. Now Redbraes Community Garden is about to spring into action for a new growing season. Come and join the team on Saturday 21 March at 11 am when the hut will be open for refreshments.
Here’s the message from garden committe member, Julian Sian:
” Why not come along to your garden and help it on its way with potatoes, spring bulbs, and ideas. For the kids, there is Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to paint. Bring vegetable seeds if you can because we need more!”
And in case you need any more inspiration, here are a few scenes of last year’s hard work which turned a figment of the imagination into a flourishing garden.
March 2008 the plan on paper. The design by Rebecca Govier in response to ideas from local residents.
May 2008 plans become action. Becky ( on the left) and Simon Daley (on the right), get digging after winning the lottery. (Simon is a local community police officer and a driving force of the garden).
July 2008: still digging. Young volunteers join the work force preparing for the open day
Time for a teabreak: another broken nail?
The garden grows with generous gifts of time and materials. On the left, Simon receives paint from Euan of Leyland Paints, and on the right Shremeck, Lukas and Pawel line up to help create the Polish memorial at the gateway.
Come and create another colourful year at Redbraes.
