Can you help tend the Green Banana?

Everyone  will have seen the planting on the strip of land between Marchmont Crescent and Roseneath Place.  It is lovingly tended by a group of ‘Guerilla Gardeners‘ who  work for an hour at 11am on the second and fourth Sunday mornings of each month.   

There's tidying, weeding, planting to do, as well as, I'm afraid, dog-dirt to clear away, (for those with strong stomachs).  Plants and bulbs have been given, and it is looking much better that it has done. 

Sometimes people stop when we're working and say what a great job we're doing, but they never stop to  help!    The Council send the lawn mower to cut the grass when they can.   There's a special brown bin there for compostable stuff and it is put out out every fortnight.  

This is a real community effort but we do need more people to help.  Could you spare an hour once or twice a month? The next days will be 8th and 22nd July.
