Market Gardening Project

Our Market  Garden which is based at  High  Market in Ashington has been transformed!   When we took over the garden, it had been untended for some time and therefore required  considerable care and  attention.  Volunteers have  helped clear  the  orchard area, weeded raised planting boxes,  cleared the  greenhouse and  poly tunnel ready for seed growing and preparation and helped with  general  maintenance.  The main orchard and planting area have been cleared and our first crop of produce has been harvested!   The garden provides a tranquil place to work and is very therapeutic!  If  you have ‘green fingers’ and would like  somewhere quiet to escape, spend a few rewarding  hours and grow your own vegetables, we  would love to hear from you.   Please use the form on our  ‘Contact Us’  page.

Pictures in the gallery below show the amazing transformation of the allotment and the hard work of our garden project volunteers.  We are already reaping the benefits of this project with an abundance of fresh, home grown vegetables and salad ingredients which are used in our soups and meals.

WHAT WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO DEVELOP & MAINTAIN THE SITE

We still require donations of garden tools and other items to enable us to continue to develop  this  project.  If you have any gardening items you no longer need please let us know and we  will arrange  to collect them.  Alternatively, items can be dropped off at Ashington Life Centre on  Station Road,  Ashington.

 Items needed include gardening tools, wheelbarrows, plant pots, seed trays, seeds, weed killer,  propagators, water barrels, heaters for the poly tunnel and greenhouse, compost, topsoil etc.

 We are also very grateful for donations towards the cost of petrol for the mowers and strimmers used  to keep the garden under control.
