Open Garden event

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.

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!
