Optimizing vegetable gardens

From Dr Nicola Whiteman:

Hi all, we would like to attach a volunteer to each ward who is going to identify all the existing vegetable gardens and try to optimize their production. Hopefully their neighbors will then start doing the same!

Anyone prepared to volunteer please contact Dr Whiteman to be added to the ward volunteer group. Please note that some experience and a passion for gardening would be preferable for these positions.

We would also really appreciate the following for this initiative:

  • Garden tools
  • Watering cans
  • Hose pipes
  • Buckets
  • Seedling trays and pots
  • Compost
  • Organic fertilizer 
  • Seeds
  • Fencing

If you can help with these items, please take them to the Our Address Shelter run by Native Roots, Old Court, Cnr of Marine Way and Sea Witch Avenue.  First gate on right as you turn into Sea Witch Avenue.

Mary-Anne Mam Cunningham is the contact person there.
