    Update from the Community Gardens December 2019


                                                      An array of our cabbages.


    We’ve had a great run up to Christmas and our gardening sessions have been relatively dry! There was a good harvest of cabbages with an assortment of different varieties and colours and thankfully the pigeons and slugs didn’t get the better of them this year. One of our session leaders and volunteers kindly hosted our Christmas bring and share lunch last week which was a huge success and got us all in the festive spirit!


    The autumn sown broad beans and sweet peas have germinated, the popular cavalo nero is cropping well and we’re making headway with the third of our new raised beds.


    2019 has been a great year in the community gardens with huge harvests and many improvements made to the gardens. None of this is possible without our team of wonderful volunteers so thank you and from us all at Grow Chichester we wish you a happy Christmas and new year.
