May off to a Good Start

It's been perfect growing weather so far this month (except a surprise late frost!) and Dig In volunteers have been having fun digging, sowing, planting and digging, sowing and planting some more. We've also been enjoying workshops on arts and crafts and on composting.

With the forecast getting better this week it's a perfect time to come and get involved if you've not been for a while, or if you've been thinking about joining in.
