Big Dig event 16th April 2016

There's always something to do in the Triangle beds in Mayow Park and more so now that spring has arrived. The hedgerow on one side of the Triangle has blackthorn in blossom, as does the plum tree sheltered by the hedge. The daffodils planted in December have come up and are flowerinf.

Our next event at the Triangle will be a gardening session on Saturday 16th April as part of the Big Dig, a nationwide project aiming to get more people involved in community food growing
The Big Dig is a project of Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming.

Friends of Mayow Park are looking for volunteers to help us on the day, between 10am and midday. 
Come for a short while of help for the whole two-hour session. We have very few tools so if you can bring a trowel or a hoe plus your own gardening gloves, that would be a great help.

We plan to plant potatoes, sow wild flower seeds, weed, mulch and prune as well as planting new strawberry plants donated by Iris at Grow Mayow.
Grow Mayow will also be participating in the Big Dig.
If there are enough volunteers and enough time we can also do some weeding and mulching in the orchard.
