'Big Weed'

Approximately 30 volunteers turned out this morning for our 'big weed' in the village square. Karen Laing, Landscape Gardener assigned to our community garden by Beechgrove suggested that we weed the banking to try and remove as much ground elder and brambles as possible. It really was a case of many hands making lighter work but it was still hard going. It's a much larger area than we first thought. Volunteers also managed to cut the Leylandi hedge right back and we removed lots of rubbish from the site. We made several trips to the recycling centre which was also very busy with people spring cleaning and gardening. Anyway, a great start to our Community Garden so many thanks to all those who got involved
