We met on the 11 th May at Chapel Quay to continue our work on the biodiversity river garden there. We are making great progress with the space and it is wonderful to see it taking shape. The phacelia flowers we sowed have germinated and our coming up nicely. These are beautiful blue flowers which the bees love. We have created two arcs in the lower section of the garden for these flowers. We added some bee friendly wildflower seeds into that area too.
The grass was cut by Bev and Rob painted the gate using our sponsored paint from fusion home interiors. Beata joined us too and helped out. She loves visiting the garden with her daughter. The hard work was rewarded with some freshly ground coffee from Colm in O’Neills coffee shop. A great café in town which we are lucky to have. We moved the picnic bench to a new spot down by the river and had our coffee along with some croissants. Some great conversation and plans for an upcoming seedbomb event were discussed. A great morning and keep an eye on our page for any meetups at Chapel Quay. We try to be there most Saturday mornings between 9 and 11 am.
