Here in the photos below you can see the story of making the raised bed at The Nose on Sunday – from piles of timber, to layering the bottom of bed with compost.
If you have any mature compost or spare soil, please be in touch; it’s going to take us a while to fill the bed up to the top!
A huge thanks especially to handyman Chan, who brought his expertise, leadership and good humour! to the work. Thanks too to Ross, Leah, Kate, Fiona, Bronwen and John.
In making this raised bed, we hope to make community gardening at The Nose even more accessible and welcoming, especially for folk with restricted mobility. Why not come down and give it a try?, no matter how mobile you are!
And if you have ideas about what you’d like to see growing in the raised bed, just let us know.
We hold fortnightly drop-in gardening and harvesting sessions on Sunday afternoons. Gardeners of all ages are welcome.
