Learning from Gardens in Japan

This autumn Martha received a grant from the Merlin Trust to visit gardens in Japan to learn about creating gardens for wellbeing and learning.

Culpeper is an amazingly hard-working oasis in the city providing a wealth of benefits for people and wildlife and this was an exciting opportunity to learn about techniques from a different gardening tradition.

As more and more of us live in urban environments, creating gardens that really work for cities becomes ever more important.

We’ve got out #First500 thanks to Project Dirt!

New Year - New shoots! We've been awarded our #first500 for our year of growing. We have £500 to invest in seeds, bulbs and plants to share with our plot holders and grow with volunteers and community groups throughout 2017. There's even enough for compost to plant things in and new hand trowels to dig with. Very glad of the support - we planted our first few chilli and tomato seeds today. They will have to stay inside until it gets warmer!
