The day after media publicity about the health benefits of gardening it was good to spend yesterday helping out with other volunteers on the Chalkhill allotments.
We were clearing the raised beds for the new season and topping them up with compost. There were problems with growing last year because there was no water source on the allotment that runs alongside the Metropolitan railway line.
That should be resolved shortly after an agreement between Metropolitan Housing and the Well London project on Chalkhill to install a water supply. Anyone interested in growing healthy local food and improving their own health through the exercise involved in gardening should look out for publicity regarding bagging one of the plots.
