Promoting the physical, mental and social well being of the community of Ossy
March 2020, all changed in the Kitchen Garden, FoRP & HBC have done their best to look after & develop the Kitchen Garden - we think we did ok but knew we needed a Gardener on site for some of the week to pick up the project, support volunteers into the Kitchen Garden and continue its community led development.
Behind the scenes, FoRP have been working hard to find a way to employ a gardener. Having secured a grant from East Lancs CCG (thank you so much ELCCG), we have taken a leap of faith and employed Kate ! At the moment this is a fixed term contract for 15 hours a week but it is very much a step in the right direction. We have other grant applications pending.
Today, 7/1/2021, Kate had her induction, kindly support by HBC. Tomorrow 8/1/2021 we will have a meeting to start organising ourselves, planting plans, how we can get volunteers back into the kitchen garden etc . We are so grateful to HBC for their continued support @Rhyddings and are delighted 2021 has got off to such a positive start in the Kitchen Garden. Kate will be posting on the FoRP Facebook page & we will be developing this page on the website to ensure we the community are updated.
Today 8/1/201, Kate's second day - we had a meeting with HBC, Lewis showed Kate around (and brewed up) & we met Moss, Kate's dog - who loves the fact her mum has a job where she is welcome too
Kate will be around on Saturday 9/1/2021 and hopes to meet people from Rhyddings Community.
Limited Volunteer Sessions are available from next week - everything must be booked via the website shop due to COVID 19 requirement - small steps and new beginnings !
