Projects

Gelli Crug Honey Bees

Gelli Crug Allotments  has 5 bee hives set up. The aim of the project is to engage with the local community and local schools by having open days where they can take part in the inspection of the hives and  help to extract and jar up the honey. However, as the project is only in the first year we have not had all the funds to buy all the equipment needed for this venture. As a result, the Greggs funding will help to buy more bee keeping equipment such as hives, bee keeping suits, honey extractors and by setting up a 'honey extracting shed' on site at the allotment. The money will also be used to buy 'bee firendly' flowers that will be planted around the allotment

Winter Tasks & Onion Forests

This week in the HoB Community Garden we been busy with winter tasks such as forcing rhubarb, trimming hedges and digging in green manure. We have also taken delivery of two 1000 litre water containers, 12 metres of guttering and 15 sheets of corrugated bitumen. These materials will allow us to complete work on the roof of our shipping container and dramatically increase our rain water harvest. The polytunnel is beginning to come to life again after a short mid-winter break. It now plays host to forests of sprouting onions and garlic as well as gutters full of broad beans; all ready to be planted out when we get some dryer weather.
