Marston Community Garden's ever-evolving project includes community raised beds, chickens, an orchard, and soon another new addition...a flower garden! This will both be a beautiful thing to have on the allotments and also great for pollinators.

This evening we grabbed forks and spades and spent an hour or so digging over the beds in preparation for planting out the flowers. There were lots of weeds and roots to remove so it kept us busy until nearly sunset. The local community will be encouraged to share flower cuttings from their gardens to fill the beds.

We look forward to seeing it in bloom!

Well done Henry for completing your 10th Good Deed!
