Front Garden Veg challengetitivate your front garden and make it productive!:

Do you have a front garden that needs a makeover?

Would you like a challenge this growing season?

Do you want to grow vegetables but think ‘I don’t have room’?
Growing-your-own is hugely rewarding and keeps you fit and healthy while saving your well-earned pennies. Convert your front garden, whether it’s an existing bed or planters on a patch of concrete, or put up some window boxes and start a fruit, vegetable or herb garden, large or small, the more inventive the better. Register your project at with a photo if possible, and again when completed, for your chance to win a prize! No email? Call 847947. And don’t forget those bee and butterfly friendly flowers for a bit of additional colour!

Volunteers needed – If you can spare any time to dig, plan, publicise, fundraise, man stalls etc etc, please let us know. We need volunteers to move on to the next stage, particularly hands on gardeners (no experience necessary)!

Guerilla gardening – The raised bed on Fore street next to Cornwall Furniture Re-use Project has been dug over and some strawberries, mint, forget-me-nots and other butterfly plants put in for now. Any ideas for the next guerilla gardening site? Does an unkept area of land somewhere need your attention?

Green drinksSocials/seed & produce swaps are being held at the Railway Inn on Fore St every last Thursday of the month (check blog for last minute changes!). Bring seeds or produce if you can, or just come along for a chat.
