Kent Wildlife Trust successfully secured funds from Kent Community Foundation’s Little Cheyne Court Wind Farm Fund. The grant amount of £1,800 provided tools and funds for an irrigation system for the Marsh Community Garden, part of the Romney Marsh Visitor Centre. In June, a team of volunteers led by Liz and Louise at the Visitor Centre installed the irrigation.
Since then the impact on the vegetables, fruits and plants grown across the site has been remarkable. The old, very labour intensive, watering system (lots of watering cans!) has been transformed into an efficient irrigation structure. Our polytunnels are now producing a large number of crops and plants for our volunteers to sell at the visitor centre on site (Photos below).
