Urmston Food Forest Garden


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 (https://richsoil.com/hugelkultur/)
techniques. Along with balance of place and Natural Local Ecology.
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' ;} )


(Update: I spoke to the Head Groundsman at the Local Golf Club and He showed Me all the piles of rotted leaf mulch I Can get.
I already laid some over another project before Christmas 2020.

We are running behind a bit, but Spring's onset has Been gradual.


Coming Up - 15.04.2021

Getting help from people to get more leaves and mulch on the ground
at Urmston. The Horse Box is ready. Mr Nixon is too and The Cat.
The Good Guys of 'Driftwood'



Time to contact Trafford Council to See if they Will take away the rubbish and Asbestos We just found, before We can start laying matter on the ground.
