Garden Share - There are still some gardens that do not have gardeners. All gardens can be found athttp://www.lymingtongardenshare.org
Mapping Projects - with OS ongoing.
Wild Flowers - Kate explained that just sewing seeds without proper preparation is unsatisfactory. Seeds are expensive and yields will be poor.
Priestlands Walled Garden - No real solution to this. It was felt that the school uses the garden to promote itself and would benefit from setting up a management plan to work out what is going to happen.
Lymington Veg Shop - Angel Courtyard - Natasha (the jam lady) has taken over the fruit shop. She is keen to stock local produce and anyone's garden surplus. Help support this local independent business.
School Energy Project - This is a great NFT initiative, part-funded by the NPA's Sustainable development Fund. The group felt that we need to advertise this further - it would give us greater credibility with a wider cross-section of the community.
February - New Forest Transition - Visioning event -
March - New Forest Transition - Training weekend, Minstead Study Centre
Insulate Hampshire's free top up insulation was well received in Lymington earlier this month.
