Willow Hey project 27th August update

Another great days work on site today  and as usual varied and enjoyable. The First job of the morning as always was feeding and watering the chickens who live on the site. Next up sowing hundreds of spring cabbage seeds in the greenhouse and giving the tomatoes, peppers and carrots in greenhouse number two a bloody good watering. We also continued cutting back the bush to reclaim for more growing spaces for next season. Later in the day a large area of fencing to the right of the site was repaired using various different types of wire and fencing parts which were already on the site when we moved on last autumn. Towards the end of the day film maker Ed Pink turned up and we spoke about some up and coming local debates centred around food access, we also had a diverse and engaging talk about issues surrounding food there and then. All in all a great day and hats off to everyone who attended today, and before a pour myself a pint of locally brewed Great Lever Ale i will leave you with some pictures.

We found dozens of these containers in one of the sheds and now they are in the greenhouse with young carrots growing in then
