We are putting plans together for the new growing season in the Planet South Bank community garden, ‘The Nose’ at St Clements Church, and we would love you to be involved. We will be running regular gardening sessions from March to October this year. Our sessions are on alternate Sundays at 4pm. We start on 11 March with a spring clean of the garden, which is at the front of the church (access via Nunthorpe Road). Please see below for the dates.
This is a community garden so if you would like to grow some different things, contribute seeds or seedlings or have any ideas please bring them along to one of our sessions or get in touch. If you feel like doing a bit of gardening during the week or anytime outside of our planned sessions please feel free.
You don’t need to have previous experience to join the gardening group – we all muck in and help and learn together. It’s a sociable and fun activity and a great way to get out in the fresh air and meet new people, as well as doing something productive (that you can eventually take home to eat!). If you would like to receive regular updates, or plan to come along regularly, we recommend you join the gardening group email list so that we can send you updates and let you know if there are any changes to our plans.
Hope to see you soon!
