We really need to get a core group of gardeners together now as there is plenty of work to do. We have the base, we have the tools, we have the projects – all we need now is enough workers to be able to pull together a small group every time there is work to be done. This will focus on the community garden opposite the Palace in Union Street (clear up weekend coming soon – lots of heavy rubbish to move!), but will also include other patches in Stonehouse. And maybe an inspirational visit to a secret garden which has already been created in Stonehouse. Let us know if you want to be involved – you don’t have to turn out every time, just when it suits you. But we do need a fairly large group that can be invited to each outing.
And let us know if you are interested in being more involved in administering and organising the time bank. That would be really useful! We are always looking for people who want to help run Time Bank, and do things like keeping our records up to date, arranging swaps, maintaining our website and managing our twitter account.
