GiH can hold grant money for you in our bank account if your group does not have one. We would like to spend some of our money on water butts for community gardens. If your group would like us to buy one for you, please contact pjharlingathotmail.com
It’s autumn and the garden is slowing down. Think of all the animals and insects living in your garden and pots – so don’t “tidy up” too much. Leave hollow stems and undisturbed corners for them to overwinter in.
Thinking ahead: If you want some money to buy bulbs for any community garden you know of please contact us. Also, we would like to relaunch the GiH network in the spring – let us know your ideas for our future. Thank you.
Some community gardening is now restarting – check websites for details.
