The Walled Garden in Eastcliff Park is being cleared and weeded for planting this spring. A series of workdays by Teign Estuary Transition and Friends of Eastcliff, with star turns from the Rangers of Teignbridge Council and the Community Payback crew, have seen the walls cleared of ivy, the ground cleared, the raised beds in the Walled Garden ‘extension’ weeded and the surrounding paths cleared to reveal the pattern of a vegetable garden established generations ago.
The next challenge is to keep those busy inhabitants of Eastcliff Park, the rabbits, out of the way – while we grow fruit and vegetables for the rest of us. So the Rangers are back in the Walled Garden on Friday 1st April from 10am until 2pm to lead a workday building a rabbit-proof fence. If you can spare some time on Friday morning you’d be very welcome and you may be able to try your hand at fencing. For the poster advertising the day please click on teigntransition.org.uk
Members of Teign Estuary Transition try to get there most Sunday mornings from 11 ‘til 1 – see the website for details. We look forward to seeing you.
