Last year turned into a very busy time for us at People and Gardens. We spent the summer harvesting our produce for our veg bag scheme and tomatoes for the Eden Kitchens. We tried growing some different vegetables which have proved very successful and very tasty. Everyone has worked really well together as well as being involved in different tasks around the site. So all in all a very positive end to a funny couple of years.
We enter 2022 with a very positive outlook and some exciting projects up our sleeves that we are working on – more information in future posts.
Sadly one of your lovely gentlemen passed away in October, he had been with the project from the start and was a real gentle gentleman, he is greatly missed.
