MCC Gardening Group - a second Sunday of progress

The Neighbourhood Concern Gardening Group had a second very successful and productive hour or so of activity last Sunday evening. Numbers present rose slightly this week with 19 turning up to help - again thanks are due to everyone who came and put so much effort in.

The group continues to work on two main sections near the top of the open ground between Manzanas 31 and 33, opposite Manzana 28. Whilst efforts continued with weeding and raking ground (and removing a lot of the larger pebbles and near-boulders), various ideas are now beginning to take shape with 'spot' planting surrounded by pebbles as well as the planting of cuttings for what it is hoped will be seasonally-colourful ground cover. In one of the areas a large oval of stones and spot planting has been laid, within which is the beginning of a 'Wishing Hill' to be added to by those who want to 'make a wish' (a good one, please) when they add a stone.

Within the next couple of weeks it is likely the two areas being worked on will form one continous ribbon of activity along the top edge of the open ground, as most of the larger weeds and boulder obstructions between the two areas were removed on Sunday. However, never fear, there is more work to do for any willing hands that want to add to our number - in other words "All volunteers most welcome!" - see you next Sunday at 6.30pm?
