Gardeners Market was very successful this year .. many thanks to Rev. Paul Beynon for opening (his first official duty!) and the great volunteers who help us, not to mention all those of you who supported us .. we were able to make a donation to the Centre's Crowdfunding project … the Young Farmers sold out of manure, so there should be some good growing going on.
Tree register - We wanted to build on our community orchard but couldn't find any publicly accessible land where we could get permission to plant trees. So we've come up with a Plan B: donate productive trees to people who live in Lostwithiel and keep a Tree Register. It means we have a more productive trees in the area and people can bring any surplus produce to the Plant Swap.
