The changing face of Foundation House garden

Not a great photo is it? but it gives you a bit of an idea of how the beds are in the garden right now.
We have removed some of the fencing and bed surrounds to be used on other growing projects around the town. We've also joined two of the beds into one long open area for a crop of potatoes and partially prepared another open bed for broad beans. We've decided to open out the beds so that the school students will be better able to access the crops, the gamble being that the wild life might get there first!
We hope to sow the crops one lunchtime in late March with students of the food technology course. The tutor, Sue Nelson is keen to get them involved with the growing as well as the cooking of vegetables. This is brilliant news and hopefully just the start of greater school involvement in the garden.
If you'd like to come along to help sow the crops and meet the students just let me know and I'll confirm the date and time.
