Remidiation is under way


Remidiation of the site nears completion. The the site has been covered with a membrane that stops any of the pollutants coming up through the ground. On top of the membrane a 20cm thick layer of ‘super clean’ top soil has been added. Once the layer of new soil is levelled, 30cm deep raised beds will be constructed increasing the depth of clean topsoil to 50cm which will be plenty for growing food safely.

Work is well under way and construction of the raised beds will start this Wednesday (10th of June 2009). Volunteers to help construct the raised beds are very welcome and should contact Chris on 07723733056 or email chris@whatwilltheharvestbe.com
