A few months back TTC was approached by Help Direct to help in the setting up of a small garden at 1 Windemere Avenue in Clitheroe.
I went to meet with the project, and learnt that this is a project where some of the residents are keen to spice up their back garden. A couple of suggestions were made. First we agreed on planting an Apple tree in the front garden overlooking the road. The second was that 2 raised beds could be placed in the back garden. A preference for recycled plastic sleepers was made, so I am in the process of costing that up. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.
I have already bought an Apple tree for them, which needs planting, and the recycled plastic beds need buying and compost ordering from the council. Once this is done, we will need some able bodied volunteers to fill up the beds with wheelbarrows, etc.
If you are interested in volunteering or helping out on this project, please email me at email@example.com or drop me a line on 07595373682.
A date for your diaries if you are a grower, or photographer; cake baker, jam maker or creative child or simply interested in being part of a long standing local tradition.
