The volunteers from Nature’s Gym and the Friends of Mayow Park got together on Saturday 14 April to work on the newly planted triangle. There was quite a lot of work do to from planting whips and fruit bushes to a general tidy up.
Mayow Park 'triangle'
Luckily a lot of people turned up to help, and the weather stayed good for us right up until we left! The volunteers first came to the site for two weeks last year, when works were just starting. There was plenty of work to do then which included putting in a new footpath, turning over the news beds and building a seating area.
Jess & Judith ponder the work
Unfortunately, for once the work defeated us, but we still managed to get a lot done, including planting the fruit bushes. We look forward to coming back when our work comes to fruition and we can sample the ‘fruits of our labour’ (sorry!-ed.)

Thursday 7th April 2011 – Mayow Park
The Nature’s Gym volunteers along the Friends of Mayow Park and Grow Mayow spent a very happy and sunny few hours digging ot beds, creating new seating and installing a new footpath in some old rose beds in Mayow Park. The garden was inspired by permaculture principles and designed by one of the friends.
Next week they plan to plant up the beds with soft fruits such as raspberries and black currents, along with a pear tree and some scented herbs.
