Summer 2016 has been a busy time at Waterloo Community Garden! We have been making use of our new polytunnel to raise seedlings and to grow cucumbers and chillies. We have also been getting to grips with all the extra space provided by our eight new beds. Currently we are harvesting courgettes, runner beans, French beans, peas, beetroot, chard, spinach, lettuce, cucumbers, strawberries, rhubarb, and lots of lovely herbs. All volunteers get to share in the harvest, and the surplus goes into Waterloo Cottage Farm shop. Throughout the summer we have been holding regular Monday action days and a couple of evening gardening sessions. We’ve been glad to welcome new volunteers and welcome back volunteers who we haven’t seen for a while.
How to get involved:
If you would like to grow your own fruit and veg, come along to an Action Day at Waterloo Community Garden in Great Oxendon. During September 2016, these will take place on Mondays, from 10am to 12pm.
If weekdays are no good for you, we are also planning two fun autumn events, one in the evening, and one at the weekend.
