Spout yard planter

Thought you'd like to see a photo of the latest addition to Louth's "Footpath of Food".
We've installed a small metre square bed by the riverside in Spout Yard, we've planted strawberries and courgettes to give passers-by a little taster of "growing your own".
The plan is to make another similar bed on the other side of the path in the next few weeks.

Charles St Picnic!

We had a great time yesterday afternoon putting together the first of the raised beds in the Charles St garden.
The sun shone and we had many conversations with passers by interested in the project. Still work to do so if you'd like to get involved with the second stage please get in touch.
We made 4 raised beds and planted sunflower plants (thanks Johnathon!) Leek seedlings (thanks Noel & Janet!) radish and spring onion seeds (thanks Jackie & Jean!).
 If you have some plants/seeds you'd like to add to the plot then please let me know.

 Celebrating the summer solstice in sunny style!
