A weekend’s work

A group of committee members and other plotholders set to work on the water-harvesting and composting area in the top car park at the weekend.

They painted the structure and levelled the ground behind it ready for the water barrels to be installed.

Strimming was also carried out on other areas of the site.

Pearl Barton kindly provided the volunteers with tea, coffee and bacon rolls when the work was finished.

 

Harvesting rain water

The water-harvesting and composting area in the top car park is now complete – bar the painting.

A number of covered barrels will be placed behind it to collect rain water from the roof.

A trench has been dug out for a pipe to carry water from them to two barrels which will be sited on the opposite corner of the car park to make the water easily accessible to nearby plotholders.

It is hoped that eventually additional barrels will be placed elsewhere on the site to enable more plotholders to use the harvested water.
