A new garden for the Methodist Church

Leytonstone Methodist Church on the High Road has been the home of the Community Fridge since last summer, and they asked whether Transition Leytonstone would help them design and create a new garden at the front of the church. We suggested making four raised beds, to be planted with a mixture of shrubs, herbs and flowers, with an emphasis on diversity and benefits for wildlife.

On a cold day in December a group of us from Transition Leytonstone and the church positioned and filled the new beds and completed the first phase of planting. 

So far we have put in a currant bush; a sweet box (sarcococca) for winter fragrance and berries; a hebe (fabulous for bees); and an evergreen prostanthera. 

In the spring the next stage of planting will include herbs, foxgloves, primroses and lupins.
