Winter gardening session at Brockley Common

The summer has seen the community garden at the station flourish once again with much picking and eating done however gardening is a neverending if rewarding task and Saturday 15th October 2-4pm will see Transitioners and friends descend upon the plot to prepare for the winter with general maintenance tasks alongside the planting of winter crops.

Transition town member, Caroline has done an excellant job of co-ordinating the garden activities this year and writes:

Many thanks for your offers of plants for the winter garden.

So far we have offers of: broad beans, lambs lettuce, oregano, wild rocket, spinach, field beans, and possibly some strawberry plants (although it may be too late in the year to plant these.)

Please let me know before next Tuesday whether you will be bringing anything to plant. The list of possibles is: rainbow chard, spinach, broad beans, thyme, spring cabbages, rosemary, oregano, kale, garlic, lambs lettuce, onions, mustard, wild rocket, mizuna, chicory, chervil, leaf celery, parsley, peas, kale, mizuna, mibuna, winter lettuce, rhubarb, onion

And indeed you may know of other suitable plants for this time of year!

We would also be really happy to see you without plants as many hands make light work! And of course coffee and cake is always a great reward! 

Gardening with Transition town Brockley is at your own risk. Please come with health and safety in mind.

So if you fancy a spot of gardening before the cold really sets in then please do drop by and we'll be more than happy to see you! A reminder of the date again: Saturday 15th October 2-4pm at the community garden outside Brockley Station. We shall no doubt drop in to the Broca for a hot drink and cake at some point!
