The interviews begin today for the job vacancy we have, I found it really interesting how the process works from advertising to meeting the applicants (I’m the person who answers the door today – it’s an important job!)
This week at Killingbeck was our first week actually on the allotment. Our older person holds an allotment on the plot, so we looked at hers and she told the young people what she has and what she has done on their. Also one of our young people’s dad also owns one of the plots on the site, so he told us as much he knew about that. Maybe it’s because I haven’t done much work in the past to do with gardening especially with young people, but it surprised me (in a good way) just how engaged the young people were in the session. They were very excited coming up with many ideas for the community plot that we are going to use
Also I never round to putting up the picture of one of the bird boxes that one of the teenagers at The Beck had spray painted, so here it is. (Click on it to make it bigger).
We had a Community Action Day on Saturday, where we litter picked, planted, made stools and graffiti walls. We had around 70 people come. There will be a fuller account of the Community Action Day in the next few days on the news page - so keep checking it!
Yesterday, we once again had Rosebank Rangers, we planted some left over plants from the Community Action Day, and we were able to be outside the whole session, as it’s lighter for longer! The Rangers also finished putting wood chip around the plants that were planted on Saturday. They worked very well together in this session. Getting on the best I've seen since I joined them.
