A tour of the garden

Our volunteers have been hard at work this winter and efforts are showing in our lovely garden. Still feels like we’re about a month behind thanks to the cold but food is growing, roses are budding and the bees are bringing pollen into the hive!

Here is a photo tour of our garden as it is now, it’ll be so nice to compare these with pictures in a months time! If you’d like a proper tour, in person, please just drop us a line.

Enjoy…
