Edible Hexham participated in Waitrose’s ‘green token’ scheme in August and as a result we will receive a cheque of £277 from Waitrose. This is great news, as we were in need of additional funding to purchase fruit trees and bushes to plant either this autumn or next spring at various sites around the town. Do you have a public area you think would suit a fruit tree ? We have some areas in mind but all suggestions are welcome. In the meantime, keep picking and enjoying the produce at Wentworth, outside Prospect House, and at the Middle School garden! The Wentworth beds will be (mostly) cleared later this month (October ), so we can improve the soil over winter, ready to plant new crops in the spring.
