Gardening Buddies replant edible garden
Published 04/05/14



AN edible garden at Henley fire station has been replanted by the Gardening Buddies.

Three members of the group helped to tidy up the community garden, which was installed outside the station in West Street for last year’s Britain in Bloom competition which had a theme of “incredible edibles”.

The garden is filled with a variety of vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers which residents are invited to pick and take home.

This year, the garden has been replanted with horseradish, asparagus, fennel, strawberries, artichokes, chives, sage, mint, lavender, marjoram, thyme, bay and rosemary. There are also flowers including hebes and ox-eye daisies. Bark was provided by the Toad Hall garden centre in Henley.

Elizabeth Hodgkin, who runs the Buddies, said: “We have given the garden a good tidy up so people can continue to come and help themselves.”

Buddy Viv Greenwood added: “The firefighters do a very good job of keeping it free from rubbish and it’s a nice place for them to potter around when they get a break from their work, which is very stressful.”

To join the buddies, send an email to Cllr Hodgkin at hodgkin1@waitrose.com
