OxGrow Community Garden

Friday ??th April 2019

Dear OxGrowers,

April has arrived and with it so have all the flowering tree blossoms! It's a wonderful time to be in the garden surrounded by all the budding sprouts.

Our next session is Sunday 7th April, and Sunday 21st 12PM-4PM 
Sessions currently run on the 1st & 3rd Sunday of the month. In the spring, sessions will run weekly - stay posted for updates!

What's on in the Garden

The beds have all been weeded by our diligent volunteers last session. Two hundred and sixty onions have been planted, plus a hundred swedes and the front gate has been filled with over thirty wildflower varieties! How exciting!

This week we'll be planting even more flowers, and we'll be transplanting some of our leafy friends still living in the polytunnel out into the great outdoors.
