How are the tenant's plants now?
A few months later idverde visited Habinteg’s Ardnaclowney House Scheme again to check out what the tenants had been growing in their raised beds and planters – there was everything from cabbage, spring onion, tomatoes, French beans, sage, corn plants and strawberries. We are glad to say that this area has now become a focal point for tenants to meet and discuss how things are growing and to catch up outdoors.
Ann McCarron said “We had a great morning planting up the raised bed with the residents at Habinteg Ardnaclowney. The bed is now packed full of tomatoes courgettes, cucumbers, beans and salads to name a few. These will grow brilliantly outside in the full sun of their shelter courtyard. Looking forward to seeing them harvest their crops in a couple of months.”
We will be back soon to visit the tenants and to discuss how we can help clear the bed and prep it for our next spring sowing, allowing another opportunity for the tenants to improve their planting skills and for another enjoyable experience!
