A summer of incredible growth

After a summer of incredible growth in the Parkwood Forest Garden, volunteers are continuing the late autumn tidy up. The team have been undertaking general maintenance tasks focussing on existing plants and shrubs.

Thanks to the ongoing work by volunteers from the GoodGym who came down on Saturday November 9, they continued to weed their way around the garden and to apply wood chip. The garden is looking wonderful but, thanks to the bumper growing season, there is plenty of digging to do so all help is greatly appreciated.

Tim Shortland said: “Thank you to everyone who has worked on, and visited the forest garden over the past months. We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones as we continue to improve the garden.”

Parkwood Forest Garden is a beautiful calm space and a productive permaculture project. It is a young forest garden developed by Sheffield City Council in association with volunteers.
