A summer of progress despite some delays!

Tools and equipment have been arriving and plants have been growing for the Yarl’s Wood Gardening scheme.

Sadly building work has caused a number of delays and the scheme will now not start until September. While this had been disappointing, the autumn can be a lovely time to garden and will allow a routine to establish before winter – when a good reason to be outside can be so beneficial to health and wellbeing.

Setting up a gardening scheme at Yarl’s Wood is a challenge and it has been important to work with Centre staff towards a safe and successful launch.

In the meant time, Thyme to Grows second scheme at the Milburn Road Community Garden continues to develop – though at this time of year pictures are quickly out of date as things continually grow.
