Along with other Edible / Community Gardens in York, we opened our community garden, The Nose, to the public on Saturday 16 July.
The Nose is the triangular patch of land next to St Clements Church, Nunthorpe Road. We were delighted to welcome a number of visitors of a wide range of ages, from about 2 to 70.
Visitors harvested some of our soft fruit, including raspberries and red currants. One or two offered to start helping us maintain the site, which is really wonderful.
We enjoyed scones with homemade jam in the welcome shade of some shrubs in the garden. The jam was made from fruit picked in the garden earlier in the week.
Our lovely volunteer joiner was also on site preparing wood for our fantastic raised bed which will be erected next Saturday (23 July, from 11 am). Join us if you can!
