Greetings & Love,
If you have had a shit day please read this 2 minute post it will cheer you the hope up. 👊
Today myself and 4 volunteers, 2 adults and 2 willing children loaded with crops and tools and seeds ready to tackle the garden ahead, turned up at a house with a young couple with three children who were very welcoming.
We got straight to graft and dug up a 15ft × 5ft 5 inch deep bed. Turned over the lovely soil that was underneath and planted around 40 single crops ranging from tomatoes, broccoli, courgettes, broad beans, radish, some salads, and sowed end of season salads and herbs seeds and some other preps were made for winter, a compost heap was created and now another young family are inspired more to grow their own and build community.
Thick grass and hard Essex clay with some gravel is no easy task, but with a little help from our friends and moving forward with this mission together and with the children is the best feeling ever.
Number 18 in the cropsNOTshops pot, Kapow this is revolutionary movements…
And some more great news because 4 different people in different counties:
