The RSM Kitchen Garden Takes Shape

The idea of a community garden, where older folk can share their knowledge with volunteers and come together to grow fruit and vegetables is wonderful. 

So, we were delighted, when in 2023, thanks to a local neighbour, we were given the opportunity to secure a plot for the RSM Kitchen Garden and bring our dreams into reality. 

 We hope to be able to provide fruit and vegetables for our Luncheon Clubs and Feed It Back scheme.

At the beginning of April, over two days it was all hands on deck with 25 volunteers and staff to get the plot ready.  And what a fine job they did despite challenging weather on the second day!

We would like to thank:

  • Spencer from SEH Landscaping and Neil from NP Building for clearing the site and putting up the raised beds for us,  
  • The Kings Arms for donating two garden benches,
  • Morag of Rapkins Nursery for donating herbs and soft fruits,
  • and Tommy Booth for making tea and keeping us all going!
