Bank Holiday Gardening

Brockley Common Community Garden co-ordinator, Caroline has been in touch to tell us about the planned session on Bank Holiday Monday. She writes:

Hi All

You may be heading to the coast for bank holiday, but in case you have a spare morning, we are down at the Transition Brockley plot to finish planting, do some weeding/clearing, and hopefully some picking!  

The plot is looking good and we already have Batavia lettuce, Salad leaves and spring onions for people to pick if you are at the plot with suitable tools ! Peas will also be available soon.

We hope to see you down there on Monday 30th May from 10 - 12pm

Please bring your own tools, including hoes, any final things you want to plant, and we also need some sticks to label plants 

Thanks to all those who have been watering. The ground is still very dry so do please pop along and water the plot if you have the time. We are sorting out storage of a nearby hose but for now we are relying on bringing our own watering cans / water bottles 

Going forward we will be arranging for a weekly weed / water / picking rota, to maintain the garden come rain or shine ! Let me know if you would like to be one of the team.

Alex will finalise the map after the 30th so we can put up a sign showing people what's growing where. We hope to stick pins on the map where things are ready to pick!

See you on the 30th !
