Planet Southbank's Community Garden

Planet South Bank are pleased to announce thier first community gardening venture. They're working with Edible York to transform land at St Clements Church, Scarcroft Road, from grass and (elderly) rose bushes, to fruit, veg, herbs and edible flowers. They need  help to make this happen, starting with a work party on March 26th, 11am to 3pm, when we’ll be creating some beds ready to take the seeds, seedlings and plants that Edible York are providing for us. Come and join in – even if only for a little while. We’ll have spades and forks, but do bring your own gardening gloves if you have them. We’ll have a stall there, so you can find out more about Planet South Bank and pick up some information on reducing your carbon footprint (and saving money) at the same time.

 All welcome - this community garden is for everyone who is interested in growing (and eating) beautiful edible plants, especially all the local people who are deprived of growing space. Local people are welcome to come and do a little weeding, pruning or planting - or pick some of the produce, when it’s ready – or get more involved by becoming part of the ’stewarding group’ who will plan what will be planted. For more information on this, please contact info@planetsouthbank.org.uk
