Most gardeners at some time or other battle slugs and most gardens become the scene of the ‘slug war’. Newton Abbot Community Garden is no different, which is why the town’s community gardeners are digging in, and calling on others to pitch in, too.
The battle, if you can call it that, involves making mini ponds to attract more frogs to the garden. We’re guessing that the frogs will eat the slugs… or set up immigration quotas, so those slugs should jolly well have good reason for being in the Newton Abbot Community Garden at Baker’s Park!
Everybody is welcome to create the frog-friendly environment, which is taking place from 10am to noon, on Saturday, January 12. Pop along and join in with the friendly bunch – it’s the new year, after all!
Vicary’s Field is near Baker’s Park, across the footbridge over the River Lemon or follow the cycle/footpath from Asda to Bradley woods.
If you don’t have a garden and would like to grow your ow, check out the Newton Abbot Community Garden, which involves the local community in creating a garden with a wildlife/wetland area, forest garden, fruit and vegetable beds and areas to sit and relax.
