Thank you

I went on a Community Garden trail today and wanted to say thank you for all the different designs and ideas. I really enjoyed pottering in The Gatherums and re experiencing the great casual conversations as people pass.
I heard a little boy saying to another" Don't tread on the flowers." How good is that?
Charles Street:  Where is the water supply? There are so many plants and seeds growing there and the wild flowers have labels. Then to Spout Yard where water is plentiful and seeds are growing in the little "no dig" bed.
Loved it thank you

Spout yard planter

This is the newly refurbished planter at Spout Yard park, we've recycled compost bags to
form the two little beds on either side of the runner bean tub. The bags are suspended between the frame of the planter with thumb tacks, this mean less compost  and a lighter planter, just hope no one sticks a fork into them! We've planted spring onion, chioggia beetroot, small turnips and corn salad.

After a long cold winter we're gearing up to transform the growing spaces around Louth into fine displays of vegetables and fruit. If you have any spare seedlings that you'd like to plant out into one of spaces then please get in touch.
