Green Doors Gardening Project

Before we started work

Green Door has now started a new Gardening project at Westport Lake. Using a small patch of land next to the Green Door hub that is included with our lease we will hold regular gardening sessions for members to come along and try out a bit of gardening. Volunteers have worked hard to put in a wooden edging and have started to dig over the very poor soil that is full of rubble.

Over several weeks about 3 tonnes of rubble was dug out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here we see the Garden after the removal of about a tonne of rubble, weeds and bushes and the installing of the sleepers for edging.

There is still quite a few root stumps and a couple more tonnes left to go.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here we see the garden after we have removed another 2 tonnes of rubble and removed 10 deep rooted stumps and added 2 tonnes of topsoil.

 

 

In this video we see the garden after a few months of growth. Absolutely beautiful!
