Its ok to meet in a volunteer capacity at an outdoor food growing project – see the information below and the link to the government website. “When can I leave home?
You should only be outside of your home for very limited reasons, which include: for work purposes, or voluntary or charitable purposes, but only where it is not reasonably practicable to do this from home. Here is the link https://gov.wales/coronavirus-firebreak-frequently-asked-questions
The garden needs work each week there is a lot to do: creating our beds for our family of trees and plants, mulching our fruit trees and keeping the grass from around the trees and fruit bushes, mending the clay cob walls on the inside and outside of the building, mending the wheelbarrow puncture, sharpening and keeping good all our tools, finishing the steps, planning for where the the ponds will go and the wind breaks needs to go , tree planting protection of trees from voracious rabbits! digging the swales and cutting back the ever present black thorn, and other numerous and ongoing jobs!
There is lots of space and plenty of tools and jobs far and wide in the garden so we can keep safe. There is instruction and support for all the jobs and as you get to know the garden you can begin to initiate and contribute. We have plenty of hand washing stations and a covid policy. We do boil water on the Kelly kettle which you are welcome to use , otherwise bring your own hot drinks , bring your own food, drinking water and gloves if you have them. Remember Children and adults are to keep 2 meters apart and are the responsibility of parents.
You can be a part of a: sustainable, tasty, chemical free, future with food grown and enjoyed by us- the community. When the food grows you will be entitled to enjoy it as well as the ongoing benefits of connection, learning and valuing your own part in sustainable solutions for everyone. Want to be part of this project? just come along for any or all of the day.
With thanks to everyone who has contributed through: their hands on work, skills, ideas, fun and passion to the community garden so far. All our actions count right now. Thanks also to the staff and volunteers at Eco shop who have funded the work and to the Community Fund for the grant which is still going for selected activities. We have almost run out of this grant.
