Drains up!

While the residents are not making much use of the garden we (well actually Dave Skinner) are doing some groundwork. We are extending the car parking area and putting a gate in from the car park to the garden so residents can easily go out for a stroll from the garden, and Dave is laying new soil pipes in preparation for some more en-suites next year. He is also  laying new paths so we can construct a raised vegetable bed. Our vegetable growing has been very popular over the past couple of years but some of our resident find it hard to get to the vegetable garden and work in it. The new raised beds will be close to the terrace and have wheelchair access.  Being raised will help a number of our resident who find it hard to bend down. We are on a bit of a deadline to get it all ready for when the Beacon School pupils come back in spring to grow vegetables with the residents.
