Deal With It is hosting a gathering of gardeners on Saturday 13th October, to look at a number of ideas to get Deal Growing including a possible community garden at Deal Railway Station.
Sarah Gleave, meeting organiser said: “Wouldn’t it be great if everyone arriving at Deal station next year, saw some burgeoning, beautiful and edible planters and a little community garden?
We hope to form a group of volunteer gardeners over the winter to make this a reality, following some very positive discussions with Southeastern Rail.
The purpose of the gathering is to see whether we have a critical mass of people who want to be involved and to develop our plans.”
Deal With It’s ‘Grow Deal’ was formed to support initiatives in and around the town to encourage all things related to ‘local food’; from growing veg & fruit in containers, gardens, garden share, allotments and the skills to cook and preserve food.
