Working on the Triangle at Mayow Park

Working on the Triangle at Mayow Park

The Nature’s Gym volunteers have been working in Mayow Park for quite a few years now.  They have see the ‘Triangle’ area develop in to a really lovely area of bright flowers and scented herbs.  The garden was originally inspired by permaculture principles and designed by one of the friends and his come on a long way.  With the addition of the new cafe, it really is a great site to work on!

We will be back at Mayow Park in September to carry on with the work which included weeding, edging the borders, creating a path and fixing the bug hotel.

Nature’s Gym help create new permaculture garden in Mayow Park – Part 1

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.
