The garden which holds over forty outdoor plots alongside four polytunnels, fruit picking orchards and an indoor gazebo is now accepting names from individuals for the 2014 growing season plot spaces. Alongside your plot space this year you will have the opportunity to get involved in tutored garden time and also some competitive growing!You can grow all sorts in the St Conal’s Garden!Community gardener Joanne Butler will be on hand one day a week to offer assistance and advice to all growers at St Conal’s.“Next year we will start a seed sharing & saving scheme along with a possible box scheme being launched at the garden ”One of the community groups involved in the garden this year is Cara House who are finishing up a very successful garden course there. Participants not only learned practical horticulture but also built a pallet garden, had a go at pumpkin carving, and made christmas pots which go on sale in a few weeks time .Chairperson of the gardens Ann Wilkilson said “increasing consumer interest in where our food comes from combined with concerns about air miles, GM foods and sustainability has led to a community garden renaissance here in which I firmly believe is growing by the year.”So if you would like to get growing with outdoor exercise and relaxation then come on and get involved in the community gardens at St Conal’s.Plot spaces are limited so call Ann on 0868591619 for more information .Busy at work potting some plants. ST CONALS COULD PLANT A NEW IDEA IN YOUR HEAD was last modified: November 18th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Joanne ButlerSt Conal’s Gardenlast_img read more
