COMMUNITY GARDENING
Tuesday 10 April
12pm-4pm  at Bernie Spain Gardens,  Upper Ground
Flex your green fingers this spring with a spot of gardening
in Bernie Spain Gardens. Following bulb planting sessions
last December, help with the next stage of work to improve
the flower bed in the south gardens. These sessions are to
plant a range of pollinator plants to help improve
biodiversity. The plants have been chosen to provide much
needed nectar and attract insects which in turn will provide
a food source for birds. Meet at the Colombo Centre at
11.30am for tea/coffee or meet in Bernie Spain Gardens (by
Stamford Street) from 12 noon. Soup and bread lunch
provided. For more information about these activities and
the regular Gentle Gardening sessions contact Laura on
