Volunteers Day at Marlpit Community Garden

P1220830P1220782On Friday 27th May, we were helped by over 90 volunteers from Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), Norwich.
We provided refreshments, prepared tea and coffee and led the volunteers building compost-bins; weeding the herb-path; fencing the grazing area; weeding and repairing guards around orchard trees; fixing anti-bird netting over the soft-fruit area and re-covering the polytunnel with new polythene.

This is the second time the volunteers from JLL came to our Marlpit Community Garden.
The weather turned out to be perfect and we managed to do so much in a day. I would like to thank the volunteers from JLL, Sue from Employee Volunteering who along with her husband Tony worked so hard to make the day a success, Amy for making delicious refreshments, SLI members George, John, Alex, David, Jim and our regular volunteers for their tireless work.
