Station Garden as Winter approaches...
Nadia, the Station Garden Volunteer, writes:
'I have really enjoyed working in the Station Garden over the last 6 months, under the close guidance of Jean Routledge. Despite the recent strong winds the garden is still looking good. At our last session we planted some raspberry canes and removed some of the wild strawberries to make space to plant onions and garlic. The roots were tough to dig up, so it was really satisfying once they were finally out! I am looking forward to seeing how the garden develops over the colder months, and would encourage anyone wishing to get involved to get in touch as its a really lovely patch to work on. I am completely new to gardening so can honestly say that working in the Station Garden has been a great introduction, especially as I don't have a garden where I live.'
