An Amazing Day!!
What a lovely day?!
Spring was sprung today - just in time for the first Leabank Square Gardening Club of 2010!! Beautiful sunshine, delicious croissants, wonderful residents - and brilliant work!!!
Thank you to everyone who came to the green this morning - and sorted out the wildflower meadow. This is our first garden to welcome visitors, greet us after a long day at work, attract diverse insects onto the green - and a lovely place to just sit & chill. That's why this great team of residents turned up today to make it more special for all of us!
The goldest star definitely deserves to go to Matt C - who despite only (temporally) having one arm - worked as hard as he always does - without any complaints at all. Amazing!
But thanks too - to all the junior gardeners who turned out - even though the temp never rose more than 5 degrees - Alia, Aamna, George, Safiri, Shanthi & Sherif - all fantastic gardeners.
Thanks too - to the very generous donation from Nawal - who unfortunately couldn't stay - but will almost certainly come with Mohammed to the veggie planting again!
Welcome too - to Aideen - we hope you enjoyed your first Gardening Club event - long may you & your partner plant with us!
Remember - anyone is very welcome to pop along to these first Sunday of each month @ 11am events. There's always loads of coffees & croissants - and many brilliant neighbours to chat with as you dig, plant, weed, paint, prune, pick & eat.
So again - thanks to everyone who came out this morning - the meadow looks so much better - just keep your eye on it the next few weeks - it's going to look spectacular!!
