On Tuesday 24th September we held a Corporate Day and although we had monsoon weather conditions it did not put off our volunteers. We had 6 lovely volunteers who travelled from Halifax and Liverpool from Royal Sun Alliance as well as another 5 from Incredible Edible and help from Calderdale MBC Safer Cleaner Greener section.
Our aim for the day was to complete a 3 year project we have been working on along a section of the canal towpath adjoining Bethel Street car park whic…h gets used by lots of people including cyclists, dog walkers, runners, not just local people but visitors who come to our events in Brighouse.
Our volunteers put recycled railway sleepers around a number of existing ground level beds where the soil could not be contained and shifted wheelbarrow loads of organic matter onto all of the growing areas. We weeded, tidied and planted lettuce, brassicas, chard, herbs, split and divided iris, planted grasses, verbena bonariensis etc.
A huge thank you to everyone.
