Carding Mill Valley Kitchen Garden Project
Now that signes of spring are starting to appear it is nearly time to start planning what goes into the garden.
Before this though a second greenhouse is going to be installed.
Kindly donated by a local farmer the greenhouse will increase the amount of produce, like tomatoes and peppers the tea-room can use.
Again the Tuesday Task Force volunteers played a huge part in preparing the ground for the new structure, digging away at the bank to make a level surface to lay foundations on.
The soil that was removed was carried in buckets and used to fill up the newest of the seven raised beds.
