We are very excited at having received comments about the project, both via this blog and by people approaching us in other ways. Whilst most of the feedback we have received so far has been extremely positive and encouraging, we have also been approached by some members of the community expressing some reasonable concerns. We would like to take this opportunity to reassure the residents of the houses adjacent to the garden that their opinions are extremely valuable to us and have welcomed their involvement so far.The public consultation meeting on Sunday will be the opportunity for those who have not come forward yet to come and exchange views on what should (and should not) happen to the garden.
It is clear that the word has spread around the community that food will be grown on site. We are very happy about this as it bodes well for future community involvement. For this project to succeed, everyone's participation will be paramount.
You may contact us either by posting a comment responding to one of the posts on this blog or by emailing us at email@example.com.
We look forward to meeting you all on Sunday the 28th of March at the Church Hall on Norwich Drive from 2 to 3.30pm and have no doubt that by then, you will be as excited as we are about the prospects the garden offers the community.
