About me
I'm part of the Growing Kitchen community garden on the Wenlock Barn estate. We've made a pond and wild area and now have breeding frogs, toads and newts aswell as lots of other creatures. We have also created an orchard on the estate with the Urban Orchard Project.I completed a permaculture design course in 2016 and we are starting to convert the shared foraging space of the garden into a perrenial based area, reducing the need for sowing, weeding and watering.

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.

Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.

Thank all sounds great Esther.  Welcome to Sustainable Hackney.  Do blog about your work in the garden, how it is coming along, about the wildlife and the produce.
