Strong support for town garden
Berwick Community Trust’s Castlegate Community Garden is nearing completion as the fruit trees are starting to bud and the underplanting is taking shape.
Nick and Cameron from N.T. Walsh Tree & Forestry Services recently donated a trailer of bark mulch and helped the trust staff spread it in the garden to make it more bug friendly and help keep the weeds at bay.
The garden will produce fruit, vegetables and herbs for residents to harvest and use at home.
“There has been a fantastic level of support from local businesses in providing plants, wood and muscle power to get this garden underway,” said Julie Kennedy from the trust.
“We have a number of local groups and organisations lined up to maintain and develop the garden, includ-ing Northstar and others.”
