Posted by monica 03 August, 2011 22:35

Hi all
Hope you are all well, wanted to keep you posted on EDSNUB's new project, a community garden at Dulwich Hospital.
The project will hopefully start in September, subject to funding and will be run by the Vale residents Association in collaboration with EDSNUB. The new community garden will be at Dulwich hospital, just in front by the main entrance behind the hoarding. (hopefully the hoarding will be removed with the help of our lovely local councillors) The theme of the garden with be physic, using herbs and flowers to assault the senses, whilst sitting in a sea of colour and serenity.
Watch this space for updates
Thanks

Monica,

What a wonderful idea to bring something full of life to a now derelict space. I am sure that you will get a lot of support for local people willing to volunteer and supply plants and seeds. My wife and I have visited Chelsea Physic Gardens on a few occasions and it is one of the best tourist attractions in London. My wife has many years of experience of allotment growing which could be helpful to you, I will keep a close eye on your progress.

All the very best to you and hope that this will be a great success.

Thank you Beekeeper, unfortunately Hospital stipulates only Physic garden, no bees allowed. And thanks to those who are volunteering. Think we have plenty, plus I have asked Groundwork London to contribute.
Thanks for all the positive comments, lets send all that positive love to the garden.smileys with beer

Is there going to a fine mesh all around the garden to keep them out?

Hi All
Just wanted to update you on the progress of the garden project. Work will start in the next few weeks, on preparing the foundations, and designing the garden. We will also be asking for plant donations in the next few weeks. So if you are thinking of giving away any plants or seeds, flowering or herbs, please could you donate them to the garden project. Thanks
The project will be managed by the Vale residents association, in collaboration with Groundwork london and Mc Govern carpentry
And as always James Barber and Robin CrookshankHilton will be lending their support.
As always ED watch this space
Thanks

Are milk thistle seeds any good to you?

The plants grow very tall and are extremely prickly, but very attractive as they have lovely big green and white mottled leaves. And then either purple or white big thistle-like flower heads.

Anyway I'm just beginning to collect seeds from mine.

Hi Sue
Milk thistle seeds are great, please save some for the project. Il post in due course any more updates. Thanks Sue

Hi All
Just a reminder, that we will be asking donations soon. We are looking for plants suitable for planting from September. Plant spring-flowering bulbs, such as daffodils, hyacinths, and Marigolds.
So ED please (im begging with cap in hand)save your unwanted September plants for the community garden. Thanksbig grin

Monica and Heather,

My wife can donate a good number of Russian Comfrey plants from her allotment. Very healthy medicinal plants, used also for compost and plant feed and the type that does not reseed and take over the plot.
Please let us know when they you will be ready for them to plant up in the new garden.

All the best and kind regards.

Hi All
Thanks for all promised donations so far. We are going to arrange a day, where you can drop all the donations off at the site or at a site for us to pick up. Will keep you all updated. We are working alongside different groups, including the hospital site managers, who need to approve everything we do. Bless them
Cheers all

Hi All
I am off on my hols next week, but would love you guys to keep this thread going. There will be someone updating the thread every so often, however can the EDF community contribute by letting us know what you would like to see in the garden. All the funding forms have now been submitted, so with love, energy and good intention, we will receive a yes, and we can get on with the South Southwark Urban physic garden.(working titlesmiling smiley
Thanks guys.smileys with beer

Have a good holiday, Monica.

Is it likely that we'll be able to drop off plants and seeds before you go?

Posted by monica 09 September, 2011 15:19

Hi Sue
My colleague at the vale residents association is trying to organise a day with the hospital, however I would be very surprised if it happens within the next 3 days, before I go. Do you mind holding on to them, until there is an update on this thread?
Thanks
