Chapter Voices: Roger

Posted on: 22 Aug 2016 by Roger Phillips

We were delighted when Canton Community Gardens were awarded the Green Flag Award by Keep Wales Tidy earlier this year. The award recognises quality parks and green spaces.

Our volunteers have enjoyed another year of growing in our predominantly edible garden.

We have had a lot of competition from snails this year so lettuces are in short supply, but the nettles are growing well to attract beneficial insects and they make a good soup. Local schools continue to visit and enjoy tasting everything without hesitation — the wild garlic is always a particular favourite.

We welcome all volunteers on Monday nights from 6.30pm and Thursday mornings from 9.30am. Our next event is the NGS Gardens Open for Charity Day on Saturday 3 September 11.30am — 2.30pm when we will be selling honey from the Chapter bees, and there will be a chance to buy plants and talk to the volunteers. The £3 entry fee goes toward the National Gardens Scheme charity and includes tea and cakes and tasting the produce.
