The old Okebourne allotment site has been cleared and is currently being restored for use. A small group of volunteers is working to build part of the site out as a community garden, including some group raised beds of various shapes and sizes to enable local residents of all ages to participate. On Saturday, March 24th, from 10:30 volunteers will help prepare the soil (which has already been cleared), mark paths, and apply some weed control membrane to parts of the site.
Additional help is welcome.
If you’d like to participate or share ideas about how the site should be developed, please contact us – email “info at friendsofokebourne.org” or visit our website – http://allotments.friendsofokebourne.org for more details. We’ve also posted some pictures of the recent clearing activities here: http://allotments.friendsofokebourne.org/news/clearinghasbegun
