Garden Questionnaire

Before we meet to talk over our ideas for the garden, here is a questionnaire to help focus our thoughts.

It was devised by a gardener in another part of the country who has experience working with set ups like ours.

Fiona, the CEO of Walworth Garden Farm, who has seen it, thinks it is a good idea.

You can answer it on the blog, email me, or print it and pop it with your comments through the letterbox (flat 21). You can leave your name/flat number or be anonymous.

Thanks. Continue reading

Books For Sale

I am guessing most residents are aware of Cookie, the grey tabby who has relocated from her home in the fried chicken shop at the end of the street to our garden, much to Bo’sun’s dismay.

What you may not know is that a small local charity has paid for her to be vaccinated and checked over; she has been treated for fleas and worms; two residents are taking her in, feeding her and keeping an eye on her; and we hope the shop owners will give us permission to rehome her away from Abbey Court.

So my idea is to raise some money to pay for ongoing food and for flea treatments (though very kindly, a neighbour in the Square has offered to provide the next one she needs), and to make a donation to the charity which helped us with the kittens last year, and with two stray cats that fetched up in the garden.
