The grass, and weeds, have finally stopped growing so things are calmer here in the EGP office!!! The waiting list continues to grow though so we are not idle… we have been present at several relevant fairs/events recently looking to recruit new gardening volunteers. Our lovely new stash of PR leaflets has been essential for this – huge thanks Vegware for funding those. 

In early September we were delighted to be able to offer our hard working volunteers another opportunity to experience the art of ‘foraging’ – we ran another ‘forgaging walk’ after the success of the oversubscribed walk earlier in the year. Again thanks to Vegware we were able to cover the expenses of the workshop leader. Finally, we needed to purchase an additional and unexpected six hand trowels for a late flurry of volunteer new starts, our grateful thanks to Vegware for being able to do that!
