We compost all our healthy plant material pruned and left over from growing flowers and veg. Our weeds are composted. All of this plus pigeon manure from local fanciers and chicken manure from our own lovely birds goes to create a wonderful growing medium for our next generation of flowers and veg.
We have a wild garden with a pond and a wood. Actually our whole site including space outside the fence is classed as a nature reserve and we are working to improve the area to encourage butterflies, bees, birds and wild animals to thrive in it.
Here at the gardens we are trying to create habitats which increase the biodiversity and also are attractive to volunteers and visitors. A rich natural environment is also great for our own mental health!
