WYMONDHAM GROWING TOGETHER

First plant being added to our vegepod

On Sunday April 24th we launched Wymondham Growing Together, just behind the White Hart Pub.  There are many volunteer groups in Wymondham wanting to spend time in, with, and for their community.  Greening Wymondham and Wymondham in Bloom have come together to Create Wymondham Growing Together.   Did you know the RHS guidelines for getting Gold require that everything we do is environmentally robust?  

 

Climate Change is upon us, and food miles are costing the Earth.  What we would really like to see is food growing on every corner in Wymondham, fruit, veg, herbs.   We would like to be aware of our neighbours as fuel costs rise.  Growing, sharing, and even eating together, to share ideas, recipes, concerns, projects, for doing our bit to keep people warm, healthy, and excited about a greener future.

 

So, behind the White Hart Pub, and accessible to all passers by, we have erected a Vegepod, and planted it out with chives, parsley, oregano, thyme, chillies, mangé tout, white and rainbow chard, spinach, kale, Pak Choi, lettuce, kale, rocket, and salad nasturtium.  When it has been established, and the plants are growing strongly, we will put out a sign inviting people to help yourself.
