Welcoming blooms

Interested in gardening at a local project?

The good people of Transition Town Hastings (TTH) are giving ‘a general shout out for gardening volunteers’ for their beautiful garden at Warrior Square Station, which has been transformed with the time, energy and TLC of local people. Alison Cooper writes.

If you’re interested in being a regular volunteer or a now and again volunteer, TTH would love to hear from you.

The platform garden is quite large – and the volunteers have achieved an amazing amount of planting, building and growing – with 3 big raised beds of veggies, 15 fruit trees (including apples, cherries, plums and pears), raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and currents. Plus two lovely hand made wooden benches for people to relax and listen to the birds.

And there’s a plan to make the woody area where the pear trees are situated into more of a magical space with sound mobiles hanging from trees, bird boxes, funky furniture & proper paths for people to walk up and wander around. Could this be a project for someone?

TTH would also love local people to ‘Adopt A Plant’ by choosing to look after something. If this sounds like something you’re interested in, you can even make a label with your name by the plant and make it your goal to keep it watered and safe!

Very soon, TTH are getting water butts fitted to collect rain water, which will make all the difference to watering everything!

Next gardening dates are:
Sunday 9 September 10am – 1pm

Saturday 15 September 12pm – 3pm

Sunday 23 September 10am – 1pm

Saturday 29 September 12pm – 3pm

Either turn up at one of these dates or contact TTH via their website: Transition Town Hastings or their Facebook Page.
