I’ve been out this morning with other members of Transition Town Honiton giving the wall on New Street a much needed makeover! We were given permission from East Devon District Council who own the wall to tidy it up and plant herbs and other edible plants. It took a team of 5 of us about 2 hours to do one section, weeding, adding compost and planting strawberries, rosemary and sage.
Lots of people stopped to comment and say what a great job we were doing, which was nice as it was chilly to start with. It soon warmed up with the sun above us as we worked and chatted. There are more sections of the wall for us to work on on another date. Please get in touch if you would like to help, could donate some herbs or funds for us to buy more compost and plants. We are a local community group – read more about us on the website www.transitiontownhoniton.org.uk
The plants are there for the community – for you to pick as you pass by or sit at the bus stop. Add to your soups, stews, sauces etc! The strawberries should be a great attraction next summer.
