It was lovely to get to know some more of my neighbours and hear about their gardening efforts. Lots of inspiration – I took away some great ideas about growing fruit trees in pots (thanks, Lucy-Anne!), keeping chickens (Kate, Louise!) and time-honoured methods of gathering tomato seeds (Wes).
This is a simple, low-key way to start community conversations about sustainability and I'd love to hear if others have done anything similar. I'm about to leave lovely River St and move across the railway line, so look out for the Mason St West Garden(ing) Party - coming soon!
