Old Moat Walled Garden (Friends of)
Details of the support group for the Old Moat Garden Centre
For those of you who are not aware the Old Moat Garden Centre is run by Richmond Fellowship and they do fantastic work with people suffering from mental health problems, offering the opportunity to enrol for formal or informal training and work experience programmes in a realistic, commercial, but supportive environment. It offers training in nursery stock growing, propagation, vegetable and fruit production as well as contract gardening and cafe training, including food hygiene, barista training and food preparation.
The Centre has plans to upgrade/expand their facilities and the plan is for us to help in their walled garden, with restoration work. This will working on seed beds and include some lugging. We will be supervised by Jonathan Glinos of the Centre and those attending should wear stout boots and if possible bring some good gardening gloves and wear doesn’t matter clothes. Tools will be provided by the Centre and they also have a café, with ample car parking!
Work days will generally be the second Saturday of the month between 9:30 aand 11:30. It would be great if we could get together a good group of us from Epsom Rotary / Associates and Rotaractors, so please do come along and also send Jim Munns an email to let me know that you can, so that we can keep track of numbers.
