The Great Get Together at Abbey Gardens

One of the things we love most about getting our community together for lunch is that the food is as varied as the people. We snacked our way around the world, had a look at options for the future layout of the garden, chatted with neighbours, welcomed new people and while we were at it, we did some clearing and planting.

Thank you to everyone who came along and a round of applause for our organisers, publicity crew and set-up volunteers.

Next week, we’re back to our regular Saturday drop-in community gardening session, from 1pm – 5pm. Sessions are free, tools and gloves are provided and whether you’re new to gardening or an experienced grower, you’ll be very welcome.
