Hello from the Community Garden in Nuns Moor Park

The sun came out to light up the bright orange and yellow autumn colours at the garden this week. We were lucky enough to have WEA Greening Wingrove Project team and the scouts helping to tidy up the garden for the Apple Day. A huge thank you to the volunteers who have all done  an amazing job! The scouts came along on Saturday to tidy up the herb and fruit beds, remove tricky thistles and plant more strawberries, meaning more tasty fruit for summer!
