During April we took on a shared ‘backgreen’ in the south of the city. This space has been tended for years by just one resident, her health is now failing and she approached us to find someone to help her as other residents have so far failed to engage. 

We have placed a lovely novice gardener who is keen to get stuck in and learn from the vast experience of the established resident gardener. Both are now working together and to make things easier, and keep the resident gardener involved for as long as possible, we have built some raised beds for growing fruit and veg. 

Vegware’s lovely contribution has helped us do this and has made the difference in keeping this green space utilised and productive and keeping this lovely lady involved in her garden while training up a new, keen grower! A win win!!!
