We will be holding a DIY day at the new growing space on Thursday 2 November. On this day, we will assemble the raised beds, fill the raised beds with compost and plant hedging.

We would also like to hear from you if you are still interested in being part of the Townsend Community Growers project. Would you like a raised bed of your own to grow vegetables or would you like to be part of the project but share communal plots?

If you would like to volunteer to help on the day, please contact
