St Marks and Hesters way community centre

The community centre has a wonderful space behind it and part of that used to be an allotment. Now overgrown and full of rubbish, we set to to transform it into a couple of decent sized veg beds ready for planting potatoes, carrots and parsnips. This proved more difficult than expected. It took several session with volunteers digging, weeding, strimming, wheelbarrowing, building compost bins and laying ground cover for next year.

The lack of mains water caused a problem until we built our rain collection system.
