So much has happened since we last reported on our progress - here's a brief account of all that has been achieved:
The stone wall separating the park from Prestongrange Road has been lowered and the new (and beautiful!) railings are in place, allowing passers-by to see into the park.
A metal storage container has been purchased and is now installed in the community garden.
Edinburgh and Lothians Greenspace Trust have provided funds and contacts to assist in planning & landscaping the community garden. A plan has been drawn up, and the first stages of development are under way.
Weather adversely affected all our plans for work days until very recently - consequently there has been (& continues to be) a battle with nettles, dock leaves etc. The fruit trees around the perimeter are now in desperate need of attention - hopefully we will be able to take care of them this weekend.
We have hired a man with a digger to clear the area that will become the raised beds, & now we just need to remove vast quantities of nettle roots, & put membrane down before starting on our raised beds.
All set for Saturday's work day :)
Let's pray for good weather so we can get lots done!
