15th April 2022 – Welcome to our blog post No. 97


The Northchurch ‘Grab & Grow’ event last Saturday had an amazing number of customers and here are some of the SRT gang with the ‘Ukjie Toones’, ukulele musicians. What a fantastic day! Photos from the event on the right.



The Repair Shed demonstrating and showing what they do.









Second veg boxes of this year at Northchurch, where they have been putting together the seasons veg and have included fresh nettles for 7 of them! Watch out for those stingers!








Sean & Catherine doing the bedding dance on new turf. It helps to reduce air pockets and get a good contact with the roots and the soil below.


Sylvia, Sean & James weeding the rose and flower beds by the Summerhouse.








Matthew working on his sawing skills and getting a straight line cut to kame a square box which will then be used for a concrete mold. Cakes enjoyed by all, especially the cinnamon buns and the lemon berry layer cake.









The bakery team at Hemel Food Garden have been making – guess what – Easter cakes this week, for the cafe.















Traditional Easter Simnel cake, and a three, layer chocolate and vanilla cake – gorgeous.

At the end of last week, they whipped up some delicious, sweet treats for Northchurch to sell at their ‘Grab and Grow’ event on Saturday.















Trainees crafting new trainee birthday cards.









The chicken space now has its gate – well done Chris!







The potting up has produced all these. Beautiful planting, straight lines and signs all ready in place.
