Wildflower turf, rhubarb & more!

We’re so missing our organised volunteering sessions down at the St Davids Garden Project but with deliveries arriving, from the community development package we were awarded by Keep Wales Tidy, we have had to have a few people down there receiving and installing bits etc.

This last week we managed to:

  • get all the top soil and compost into our new raised beds
  • lay the wildflower turf … yep, rectangles of turf mesh planted with widflowers!
  • mark and measure for a possible main path through the garden
  • clear more piles of roots, soil and organic matter
  • heel in 5 small apple trees
  • collect four donated plastic compost bins, and
  • plant some rhubarb root stems that were donated by Lower Treginnis Farm along with some raspberry canes still to be planted

A HUGE thank you to Mari Williams the Pembs Keep Wales Tidy project officer who has been such a great supporter of this project and also been down working so hard in the garden whilst we can’t have volunteering events. Loads done … loads to still do! It’s a really exciting time and also great to be hearing from more and more locals offering to help the project and volunteers keen to get involved on the ground.  We’re keeping a list and as soon as the rules allow, we’ll arrange some events.  Over the next few weeks the team will be doing more publicity and inviting our community groups to get involved, so watch this space!
