For those of you interested in the community garden project there are two days planned; Sunday 31st JANUARY 2010 midday (ish) – all afternoon.
We work for a while then all gather to share food and hot drinks.
(quick reminder about “seedy saturday” March 6th in Kingston Market House bring seeds to swap, there will also be stalls)
Carrying the rubbish uncovered when we cleared the brambles to a pile by the area near the compost bins, ready for a trailer which may have arrived already if we are lucky!
Digging a trench in the new area for the new hedge bushes which are on order.
Clip bramble, this is a really good time to cut the bramble and pull out the roots and dig it up as the soil is wet and with other plants losing their leaves bramble is more obvious!
Prune apple trees and put sticky strips around trees
Remove suckers from damson trees.
General maintenance…. Compost toilet. Woven withy wall
Decide what to do with the tyres!
Bring along secateurs (for those who want to continue the ‘battle of the bramble’) and
forks for lifting bramble roots, gloves and any gardening equipment that you think you’ll need.
Please wear stout footwear and protective clothing. This site is uneven
underfoot and the bramble thorns vicious!Secateurs, lobbers and
leather gardening gloves are ideal.
DIRECTIONS TO THE SITE Kingston Permaculture Reserve (KPR).
At Tolworth roundabout turn into Barnsbury Lane. Right at Hazel Bank, left at Alpine Avenue and follow signs for
Knollmead Primary School. Leave vehicle on the road and walk into allotment site.
Turn right at T-junction (compost bins made of pallets) and the site is at the end of the track through our woven
gate. Please avoid driving on site.
Hope to see you there
