Space to Grow - Urmston


A community allotment set up for the people of Gorse Hill. It was the only, closest space available, so I naturally snatched it!

The vision? Food Garden. Local. Native ecology and balance.

Permaculture and Hugelkulture (
techniques. Along with balance of place. Minimal dig and disturbance to soil.

Clear top debris, roots, stones, bricks, plastic... etc
Then put piles and piles of leaves and sticks down on top.

Then place full hay bales over the central part of the garden and allow spaces for access.
I have found mountains of rotting leaf mould at the golf course. So I will approach them and see if they want to fulfill some 'CSR' ;} )

Also see Gorse Hill Forest Garden for another proposal...
