Today’s our 10th Anniversary.

We were offically constituted as a group back on 13th October 2008. So today is our 10th Anniversary. So much has happened this last 10 years. And it has to be said few groups make it this far. Well done to all, past and present, for all their work getting us where we are today. Everyone should be very proud of the role they played.

Happy Birthday us!

PS we actually started in July 2008 but it took a while for us to get offical.

Minority and Refugee group helping us, helping themselves.

Thanks to Community Engagement Activities (CEA) group for coming out last Sunday 23rd Sept 2018 and helping maintain the meadow and clear the surrounding pavements of leaves and small branches from the recent storm. Really good turnout from this minority and refugee group of some 14 people and they cooked a meal afterwards.

Harvest Festival Saturday 15th Sept 2018

Come along this Saturday 15th Sept to the Harvest Festival between 1-5pm. Loads on!

Maybe some honey? Some information and activities on looking after the meadow so we have more wild flowers next year. There are still a few brambles available for picking. Although the orchard trees are now pretty bare.

Great afternoon for all in a wild natural greenspace !

Wild food foraging event

Thanks to Mark Galloway of Galloway Wild Foods for giving us a superb talk on foraging yesterday Sunday 15th July 2018. He took us on a walk around our land, and helped identify plants and how to sustainably harvest, cook and preserve them. He then made up a banquet of food for us to tuck into at the end! Credit to Fergus of the Orchard Project for helping to organise this one.

We’ll hopfully have Mark back later on this year so watch out as he only takes limted numbers.

Orchard Community Event

Thanks to Tom who came over from Edinburgh and hosted our Orchard Community event on Saturday 30th June 2018. Credit to Fergus from the Orchard Project for helping with arranging this. We had a great bunch of volunteers that came out to learn about how to maintain an orchard such as pruning techniques and disease control.

He did point out each of our fruit trees needs a bucket of water in this heat so any help on this would be much appreciated by local people. Our fruit will taste all the more juicy for this! Talking of which you may find some of the cherries ripe enough to eat. Please help yourself.

Also any help with watering the centre of the meadow would be appreciated. Get in contact if you’d like to help out.
