This week Edible High Town and Penrose Roots began work on the new food garden on the corner of Edward Street and Kingston Road. It’s a plot we’ve had our eye on for a while. Earlier this year we talked to local residents and asked them what they’d like to see on their street. Plans were drawn up for what will be our most ambitious project so far, and we’ve partnered with Penrose Roots to make it happen.
The full plan will include raised beds and three pyramid shaped planters, currently under construction.
The garden will be fenced from the road and at the back, and will eventually host our first community compost bins.
Thanks to the team who worked hard on a miserable rainy day! We’ll keep you posted on progress, and look out for community gardening days in the spring where you’ll have a chance to get involved.
