Spring is the season for blooms, and behind the old courthouse in Two Wells, the local community garden is really starting to come together and “bloom”.
Two Wells Community Garden project manager and volunteer, Judi Frost, said the garden is taking shape and members of the community have been volunteering their time at weekly working bees.
In recent weeks three pergolas have been erected, one of which will soon be covered to provide shelter from the rain and shade in summer, wooden stepping stones put in place and young strawberry plants potted up for sale.
Large feature pots and decorative urns are set to be positioned and planted out in coming weeks, with garden beds mulched and wicking beds continually being maintained.
The coordinating committee is planning a special official opening day of the community garden for May next year, an event which they hope will see the craft shop open, market-type stalls set up, a light lunch served and a possible collaboration with the community nursery.
Watch this space for details early in the new year.
