Our first garden.

The Grove Residents Group get started on their first garden. After the  intial startup and meetings to form the Grove Residents Group  we started on our first garden 18th November 2010 in Cambridge Gardens W10.

Harvey, Sean, Rosie, Sandra and Sheila got stuck in with rakes, spades, wheelbarrow, recycling bags and strength to get started. We cleared the front garden which was full of leaves and some rubbish. Harvey our Head Gardener explained to us the process of gardening and said it was important to prepare the ground; not just pulling up old plants but ensuring that all weeds and roots were removed as these could potentially and would likely regrown again. We got stuck in cups of hot tea and coffee at the ready provided kindly by the resident whose garden we were making over. It turned out  to be a very successful and proactive day; moral was very high  and thank goodness it didn’t rain.                                                                                                     

The group are meeting again on:-

Friday 26th November 2010
