overgrown and unloved walled garden comes back to life

It is only 3 months since we started work on this community allotment and look at what has been achieved!

In Autumn 2009 Franck first suggested the idea and approached the landowner, the Duke of Somerset.

In Spring 2010 permission was given for a communally worked allotment garden on the walled garden next to the churchyard on church street, maiden bradley.

The site was badly overgrown and was first ploughed by Graham then rotavated by Philip before beds were marked out and planting started in April

marking out the first bed

The first few beds were filled mainly with potatoes, with a few broad beans and garlic. As the weather improved, later beds were sown with peas, mangetout, cauliflowers, sprouts, french and dwarf beans, kale….you name it.

the green house was made out of 2 donated ones joined together…..

A polytunnel frame was loaned and erected….
