JOIN US FOR SOME WILDFLOWER SEED SOWING,
MEET AND WELCOME OUR NEW GARDEN CLUB LEADER &
HELP US PLANT THE NEW APPLE TREE

SATURDAY THE 20TH OF MARCH 2010
FROM 12.00 TO 16.00
AT ABBEY GARDENS
BAKERS ROW
E15 3NF

As part of Newham’s Plant for Life initiative we will seed a two meter wide strip of wildflowers along the street edge border of Abbey Gardens and officially kick off the 2010 gardening season. As well as helping with the wildflower seed sowing there will be other activities you can help out with like making scarecrows to keep the birds off our fresh grass seed.

We would also like to use this opportunity to warmly welcome Hamish Liddle our newly appointed Garden Club Leader.
From Tuesday the 16th onwards Hamish will run three weekly Garden Club Session at Abbey Gardens. Similar to last year the sessions are open to everyone who is interested to learn and participate in the garden. Just come along to any of the session and get your hands dirty. Garden Club Sessions are Saturdays 10am – 3pm, Tuesdays 1pm – 3pm, Thursdays 4pm – 7pm

Last but not least the new apple tree has arrived and we will plant it in place of the old apple tree which had to make way when the site was remediated last year. The new tree is a family apple tree which has three apple varieties grafted onto one stem – Worcester, Bramley and Cox.
