OxGrow Community Garden

Friday 18th June 2021

Our next session is Sunday 20th June, 1PM-4PM 

Sessions currently run on the every Sunday of the month. 

Hello beginner and experienced growers, 
Oxgrow's newsletter is back to update you on the latest news and tasks to do on the field.
New volunteers are always welcome! Just walk in the front gate and we'll come and greet you.
Rules for your safety:
Please start the session by sanitising your hands. If you are able to feel free to wear a mask during the session.
Please bring your own gloves, hand tools if you have them, and hand sanitiser. We'll be practising social distancing so it's important to stay at least 2m away from others and there is a limit of 1 person in a polytunnel at a time. 
To help protect other volunteers you can now receive free at-home 30 min covid tests.
Task for the coming session:
This week's main task will be digging up compost to fill our brand new planters. Then we'll be planting courgettes in them and mulching them down.
We will also be clearing and composting beds ready for squash and pumpkin planting. 
Finally we'll be planting more tomatoes in the poly tunnel, more lettuce in the beds with the onions and then watering and mulching around the garden. 
After all that we'll all have a cup of tea, some snacks and enjoy the garden and lovely weather.

There will be tasty kale, chard, lettuce, mustard leaves, asparagus, radishes and herbs for volunteers to take home from the garden.
Please do not attend if you have been unwell in the last 14 days or have come into contact with someone who has. If you have a smart phone please install the NHS covid app before attending.
