How did we get here?

April 12, 2019

It's been a difficult journey.  When we took on the site at the end of summer last year the brambles had been left to take over and were around 7 foot high and covering every inch, all you could see was the very top of the polytunnels.  One bramble at a time a handful of us volunteers set about cutting them back, by hand and without using any harmful chemicals (because wildlife was thriving).  I was running it and struggled to put more than a couple of days a week in as I'd also returned to university, I'd never run a project like this and felt that the Masters in Project Management would be an asset so my Masters run alongside this.  Almost a year on we still have that handful of us who love the place as if it was a child...watching it come to life again has touched all our hearts and the feeling that you get from being here you cannot get anywhere else.  Now that university is coming to an end I am preparing us for delivering a range of accredited learning for adults as well as options for 12+.  We are starting our social prescription activities and looking forward to creating a little polytunnel garden centre.  The newts, butterflies and bees have just returned and we have a resident robin who loves to steal worms as you dig!
