The second area for garden boxes was fully set up this March 2022! It was one of the hardest areas to complete due to the number of bricks that lay under the surface. These bricks were broken and uneven, making for a poor surface for the boxes to be built upon. The creation of the bunted area brings an excellent feel to the backyard area. One final area is to be completed. Our future plan on this area involves engaging the external community via a working Bee to be held In April.

As I mentioned last month, if you, or anyone you know, would like to be a part of this exciting project, please reach out to me at: and I’d love to take you for a walk around the garden.
