Tidy Day – August 2015

The August Tidy Day is Saturday 1st August 2015 when we hope to see more members than usual in the Community Garden to help with the maintenance of the communal areas.

The recent warm and wet weather means that the weeds are attempting to take over – and succeeding in some areas!
Our main focus on the 1st August will be two areas:

  • the removal of weeds from the planted area on the north-western side of the Community Garden
  • the removal of weeds from the compost area

The extent of the weed problem in the compost area can be seen in the photograph below:

Some of the regulars who rarely miss a Tidy Day are working on our Seedy Saturday stall at the Craven Arms Farmers Market which makes it essential that many more members step up and make a contribution to the essential communal maintenance of the Community Garden.

As well as contributing to the Community Garden you will have the chance to meet fellow members and we enjoy a mid-morning break with tea and coffee generously provided by the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre.

The Tidy Days are held on the first Saturday of the month to coincide with the regular Craven Arms Farmers Market event and members are reminded that they are obliged under the terms of the Ground Rules for Plot Holders to contribute time and effort to these monthly Tidy Days.
