The Multifaith Forest Garden

Sheffield Inerfaith invites you to join us at the Multifaith Forest Garden at Parkwood Springs on Saturday 13th April 11am – 2pm.

The day will include mulching fruit trees and bushes, planting fruit bushes, fruit tree husbandry, removal of mulch matting and general maintenance. The garden is really looking great despite the wintery conditions and there will be another chance for a guided walk around the garden for those who haven’t visited before.

Last month’s forest garden day was very successful with more mulch matting removed and wood chip spread. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who has worked on, and visited the forest garden over the past months. We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones as another Spring gets underway in the garden.
