Green fingers required at community event
RESIDENTS are being invited to a plant cutting and division demonstration in Trimdon this weekend.
Durham County Council’s waste management team together with master composters are supporting the event, which is being run at Trimdon Community Garden, on Saturday, September 28, between 1.30pm and 3.30pm.
Admission costs £1.50 per adult, or 50p for senior citizens and children, and each family will be able to take up to five plants home with them. Tea and coffee will be available.
Mary Robinson, secretary of Trimdon Community Garden and master composter volunteer, said: “The open day will be an excellent opportunity for people to visit the garden and find out about community growing.
“There will be demonstrations showing how to divide plants and make cuttings to create new plants for your garden, along with information on growing your own produce and composting.”
Durham County Council is offering residents the chance to buy a home compost bin at a discounted price. For more details, visit getcomposting.com or call 0844-571-4444.
