As a leaseholder, you’ll have keys to unlock the garden, use of the tool shed and access to water, so that you can tend to your plot at any time that suits you. With other community gardens in the area bursting at the seams with members, this is your chance to get your own garden patch with ease and comfort, far closer to home.
All this excitement isn’t without a little elbow grease. As such, there will be a working bee on Saturday 19th November and we are looking for volunteers to assist in setting up the garden.
Not only will you have had your hand in establishing something that will support your community, but volunteer names will also go into the draw (along with those registered through the EOI process) to be allocated a leased wicking bed plot of their own! Please note this is a chance draw, there is no guarantee of being allocated a plot. However, all residents of Bowden can become members and have access to the shared plots.
Membership of the Bowden Pop-up Community Garden is open to residents of the local Bowden community and will be managed by the PTCG committee. If you are a passionate gardener or even a plant-loving novice, this is your time to be part of a flourishing community activity.
Once the ‘pop-up’ aspect of the garden is finished, the wicking beds will be moved to the permanent (plus new and improved) Park Terrace Community Garden. As a member, you’ll still be able to share in the bounty of your efforts after the relocation.
To volunteer for the working bee on November 19th, or to put your name down for the EOI process for your own wicking bed, register your interest via the PTGC Facebook page
and send them a message
We look forward to seeing this project GROW and are really excited to once again be embracing the natural side of Bowden.
