Progress at the Premier Inn Site

Progress at the Premier Inn Site

This is a quick update on the latest burst of activity at the Premier Inn site.

Despite being dressed unsuitably, the Transition Belsize Premier Inn gardening team were not put off by the cold wet weather and met up at the weekend to check out the state of the site. Those scurrying up the hill were greeted with a swinging compost bucket of veg being fed to the worms. Heartless team members had no qualms about expressing a lack of sympathy for the wimpiness of those who had refused to garden in the snow a couple of weeks earlier. The team set to work, no messing around, rescuing drowning worms, pruning straggling plants, tidying away unsightly plastic bottles and cardboard. Hiding under an umbrella, a team member took notes of what we were going to plant where.

A new member was amiably coerced into helping, but he subsequently admitted to enjoying it! Wood chips were transported to the site and spread around to cover the muddy pathways between the raised beds. The wormery was completely hosed down and reassembled and inquisitive passers but were told what was going on.
 
More wood chips were taken to the Swiss Cottage site but we then ran out of time and had to postpone the ordering of new trees and seeds to next week.
