Station Garden Year 2

Gardeners Ahoy! It's all happening down at the Station Master's House garden again this year, thanks to Off the Rails getting Network Rail's OK last year - when the garden produced some lovely veggies. Watch the space as herbs, veg and flowers appear over the coming months. Hope Wendy the Station Cat is ready for the invasion...
Contact the food group if you can give any help and watch the blog calendar for work sessions, all are very welcome
The garden will be on show for Open Gardens on May 21st/22nd.
