From Paul Ryle: it was a great day for Royal Park and the local community - we now have a community fruit and nut orchard and community herb garden and footpaths between the community garden beds. Thank you all for your hard work.
Paul Ryle had sourced heritage apple trees, and these, plus other donated nut trees and other fruit trees, were planted into well mulched circle beds, along with companion plants.
A messy front garden was transformed into an extensive herb garden, with a brick path edge.
A dedicated group took on the weeding of the community garden beds, and cleared and mulched all the paths in and around the beds.
