Train Station Gardens

Hi garden girl. The reason Belper Station had so many people helping on that picture is because we organised a 'community day' and got people from East Midlands Trains and Network Rail to help too. Otherwise, there's usually 4-6 of us working on an enormous area Too wet to do much at the moment, but things re popping up underneath the snow

Community gardens are wonderful things. Congratulate your mother. Have you seen the video about 'incredible edibles' - it's a must, what an inspiration. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqhx4Etdvr0

In Belper, Derbyshire, a group of us adopted the train station green spaces, which are extensive. It took us 6 months to clear the weeds and self-set trees (gardens had not been tended for 7 years!) In November, we started the re-planting process which mainly involved planting native, wildlife friendly and sustainable plants.This is a long term project and the gardens will not be complete for at elast another 2 years, but we are excited to see what they'll look like this spring
