We are pleased to announce that we have received funding from The National Lottery for building a forest garden with volunteers on Horseradish field in Ten Acres. This garden will be called “Top Meadow Garden” after the meadow that used to sit there in 1840.
Why Horseradish Field?
Horseradish field is already full of lots of tasty edible delight including Horseradish, Russet Apples, Hawthorn, Sloe and Pear. It is a small flat field directly off the widened pathway and in full daylight, so it’s not shaded by canopy cover. We felt it was the perfect spot to build upon and enhance it’s already edible nature!
Sessions will run once a week from 9th April 2021 for families with children who want to do a bit of gardening or play in the soil with us outside. Sessions are every friday from 10am until noon and are booking only due to covid restrictions (sign up via eventbrite here).
Alongside these sessions we will also run monthly litter picking groups to help keep Ten Acres clean and tidy! Book your place on a litter picking session on eventbrite here.
We are also super pleased to announce that we will be able to purchase a great user friendly bat detector tool which we will be training our Bat Volunteer on so watch this space for bat walks coming soon!
