Our “Ooh, look at that!” moments


Whatever you’re expecting from one of our gardening sessions, there’s always an “Ooh, look at that!” moment at some point. Today’s delights included tomatoes growing in a fan shape and biologist Marleen’s potato harvest uncovering a perfect section through a plant. So when we come and do some gardening, we take away more than our shared harvest, the pleasure of sociable gardening and the satisfaction of helping to make a lovely community space grow – we take a bit of knowledge home too.
