Market Garden Blog
Thanks to the Prison Service, HMP Hewell, the brick work for our herb garden is complete! We are now planning where everything will be planted and with the help of Nick, the Head Gardener at The Granary Hotel and Restaurant, sourcing the herb plants. We also intend growing some herbs from seed so that everyone involved gets to experience both sides.
Our Aquaponics Education Centre is moving along quite nicely with local companies having been very generous in donating IVC’s to act as fish tanks and plastic drums which shall be turned into the filter system.
We had an article in both the Bromsgrove Standard and Kidderminster Shuttle announcing our intentions of building our centre which was received positively and are now searching for a Polytunnel in order that we can continue with the project.
We are now also working with Mencap offering work experience to a young man as part of their project to help young adults find work. This is working very well, Roy is hard working and eager to learn.
Should you wish to come down and see the progress being made, speak with John on 01527 873426 who will be happy to arrange a visit.
