Weekly Gardening Group
At the Precinct there is an active gardening group who meet on Tuesday’s and the last Saturday of the month.
Since 2015 community gardener Stephen Shiell has led the group to transform the outdoor area from wasteland to a vibrant growing space. In 2017 we had a plentiful growing season with an abundance of seasonal organic vegetables including tomatoes, spinach, kale, courgettes, sweetcorn, salad, herbs, chills and cucumbers to name a few. We champion container planting, great for small spaces, and use companion planting to improve yield and keep pest at bay. We practice soil regeneration and composting to keep everything healthy and encourage birds and bugs too. Alongside growing skills you will learn how to design and build garden spaces. The skills you will learn at the gardening group can be transferred to your growing adventures at home.
All materials and equipment will be provided, sensible shoes are required (no flip flops) and it is advised you do not where your favourite top! There is no need to book just show up on the day. Pop in for an hour or stay all day.
