The Garden Share Collective September 2014

As summer draws to a close and school reopens, it is time for the latest round of updates from the Garden Share Collective members, a full list of which can be found on Lizzies blog. It has been a strange summer break for the school garden, as it has been invaded by hundreds of wasps, not nesting but foraging on the sap of the trees which form the Willow structure in the grounds.

The Garden Share Collective: August 2014

The Garden Share CollectiveWith the children 1 week into their summer break, comes the reminder from Lizzie of Strayedtable, that it is almost time for the next Garden Share Collective and as I contemplate what to write, it dawns on me that this is my twelfth contribution to this brilliant project. Twelve whole months of gardening/garden maintenance has sped past in a blink of an eye and already my thoughts are turning to Autumn/Winter jobs for both the school and my own garden. For now, however, I will concentrate on the monthly update for the school garden and once you have read this, why not pop over to Lizzies’ blog and catch up with the other gardens in the Collective from the UK, Australia and New Zealand.

I am sure that plenty has been going on in the other Garden Share Collective gardens, so why not pop over to Lizzies blog and click on the links and see what has been going on in Australia, New Zealand and other British garden.


The Garden Share Collective: January 2014

Unable to proceed any further in my own garden until more manure has been purchased, my thoughts turned to the jobs that were waiting in the school garden but more wet, cold and windy weather, together with a head cold, kept me from venturing out.

Then this morning, January 2nd, the day dawned sunny and dry, if still a little chilly and then the gentle reminder Lizzie sends out to those of us who contribute towards The Garden Share Collective, arrived in my inbox and so, leaving the Mudlets in the care of Mud, I headed over to the school and set to work.

The Garden Share Collective: September

When I was asked if I would consider joining the Garden Share Collective, I decided that rather than write about my own garden, I’d cover the tasks and aims of the school garden and the Gardening Club. For those of you unfamiliar with the aims and objectives of the Collective, I have cut and paste the following from the information sent to me by Lizzie, founder of the Collective. Continue reading
