Big Dig 2017

Sat 22 Apr 17

Windmill Gardens has had a lovely display of spring bulbs and we want to ensure that it goes on looking good for the rest of the year so that our visitors to Brixton Windmill always see it at its best. So we are organising a gardening workshop on Saturday 22 April from 2pm-4pm in Windmill Gardens as part of the Big Dig 2017.

We hope you will be able to come along to help.  As always, the Friends of Windmill Gardens will provide gloves, tools and light refreshments.  Please wear suitable clothing.

Our aim for this workshop is to improve the herb bed which is in need of some serious loving care. We plan to edge the paths and plant more herbs so that we can restore the original planting plan for the bed.  The bay tree in the centre also needs to be trimmed.  

If we have enough volunteers helping we will also be working on the three new planters next to the herb bed and hope to plant a climbing rose (recently donated to us) behind the windmill.

Please let us know if you are able to join us at the workshop by emailing
