After 5 years of community growing Brailsford Community Garden finished in October 2016. To celebrate its achievements local residents and Edible York had a small gathering to mark this event. Over the five years Brailford has had good crops of vegetables and local children have enjoyed planting potatoes, picking sweet peas as well as creating their own raised bed patch. Several fruit bushes have been planted and a herb spiral bed has been very abundant over the years, these plants will continue to grow at Brailsford Crescent and leave edible plants there for the community to enjoy.
In 2011, six raised beds were constructed on the large open green space at Brailsford Crescent, and Dig In ran the garden until October 2013 when two volunteers Barbara Bullivant and Caroline Stockdale, volunteered to take on the organisation of the garden. Brailsford Crescent asked Edible York if they could be an Edible York garden (ie covered by Edible York’s Public Liability Insurance and connected in to the Board of Trustees), and this happened in 2014.
Our first year “going it alone”, were very successful with good crops of potatoes, runner beans, courgettes, radishes, Turnips, Board Beans and beautiful sweet peas. Local residents came to the garden to tend, plant and harvest.
