Join us today for the next big step at The Piggeries: our first official
Piggeries Planting Day
Today, Saturday January 21st, 2017
10:00 to 14:00
We will be planting edible hedging along the fence by the towpath and along the back wall. We will be gathering rubble and construct a newt habitat by the pond, prepare a small area for leaf mulching and composting, and apply general tender love and care.
As you may know already, we will not be planting fruit trees just yet due to the ongoing investigation into the unexpectedly high water table and possible solutions, but we will begin The Piggeries’ transformation from an eyesore to a gem by the canal today.
Please join us if you can.
Wear sensible clothing and shoes, possibly wellies. Bring gardening gloves. A pair of secateurs or a spade might be useful. Human-friendly children and well-behaved dogs are all welcome if under supervision. [map]
Later in spring, we will add more fruiting hedges, sow the wildflower meadow area and sow and plant around the pond. Check this website and our Twitter for further announcements and future opportunities of getting involved.
