Would be lovely to see you all (and anyone you might like to bring, just let us know).

Exciting times

We recently welcomed several new trustees we will publish their profiles in due course.
Last month we had a productive meeting exploring Permaculture as way of developing the new garden. The site has not been under the plough for many years. New possible links with other community gardens are also being explored.

The support of local businesses and people is needed as we prepare and develop the community garden plans for the new site. Offer practical help now, exercise your intellect as a trustee, or donate time or manpower. The charity needs funding too. You can make a difference and really help drive the change. email us now .

Yes - a NEW Garden

A few days ago the KEG trustees were unexpectedly offered the use of a privately owned substantial walled but overgrown field, in which to establish a new garden.

At a meeting on Friday 12 May it was decided to try to re-site and create a completely new Community Garden. This will be a large and varied task and the challenge needs to be accomplished with alacrity.

It is absolutely vital that new voluntary trustees come forward if this undertaking is to become a reality. In addition to the basic treasurer, secretary, chairperson and ordinary member roles there is a pressing necessity for, a logistics & support team and a fundraising subcommittee of at least three.
Other than the need to follow to the charity's stated objectives, the way in which the new Community Garden model develops and runs has yet to be decided .

This is a wonderful opportunity to get involved right from the start.
